In Somalia, fourteen years of civil war and anarchy have led to the deaths of two million people. Clan rivalry and warfare have destroyed every semblance of normality. Three quarters of the population has no access to even the most rudimentary health care - 1,600 women out of every 100,000 die in childbirth.
Most development agencies have quit. DWB (Doctors Without Borders) is one of the few to stay on. Our film comes from a small town called Dinsoor, where the warlords have not yet eliminated traditional tribal governance and DWB is having a modicum of success in delivering health care by working through the tribal elders.
