Interventions for a Posterity

 
fardhosa ali mohamedFardhosa Ali Mohamed is the local director for the Safewomahood Organization that incorporates the Safeway Medical Clinic in Eastleigh, Nairobi, Kenya. A nurse by profession, Fardhosa is known for the inspiration of Kim Longinotto's "The Day I Will Never Forget", A film documentary that won several awards in 2003/2004.

 

Fardhosa is a serious activist whose large heart is filled with genuine compassion and in-born empathy. With conviction, she minces no words as she speaks from her beliefs about her goals in life and for Safewomanhood Kenya.

We have been caught by the heart and ears as she narrates some of the untold stories of the plight and suffering of the refugee immigrant communities of Somali people that often brings one to tears. In more ways than one, you are stirred to fight against the injustices faced by the girl-child and their path to womanhood and motherhood.

Over and above that, her experience in the medical field for many years has given her very intricate and intimate success stories & discoveries on community health work. Her commitment is often seen as she advocates for child health, women/girl rights in the streets of Eastleigh, Nairobi and in other places where such needs abound, more so, to the FGM prone communities.

Fardhosa's mention among phenomenal people at  http://phenomenalpeople.tumblr.com/post/18954820594/fardhosa-ali-mohammad by Kim is endorsed by others. Indeed, we, who have locally associated with her, do feel as if she has spent all her life mitigating against the terrors of unsafe motherhood especially those wrought by FGM

safeway medical clinicThe Safeway Medical Clinic is our first step toward the building of a modern hospital as a functional arm of Safewomanhood Organization that provides health care in keeping with our mission and mandate.

The clinic is situated in rented space in an old residential building with 'small' everything. Ironically, however, this small space has been the house of hope for many within our surroundings. From here, we have ventured to great health and advocacy campaigns religiously like the World Pneumonia Day, Immunization Campaigns, Handwashing Day, International Women's Day, World Aids Day, One Billion Rising, Measles Campaign etc   read-more

 

About Us

Safe Womanhood Kenya is a legally registered Community Based Organization (CBO) registered in 2003. The organization provides a helping hand to the refugee community living in Nairobi, comprising of Somalis, Ethiopians and Sudanese who have ran away from an unpredictable future, and the hostile environments of their war-torn countries. As our logo denotes, we try as much as we can to provide solutions and services to them, for we have found that in a foreign land, they are continually assailed by almost equal adversities. However, the organization has no limits without distinctions on status quo.read-more
