On a fateful Tuesday morning, a woman named Fatima, who was two months pregnant, endured an incomplete miscarriage. Her husband rented a car from their village in North Darfur, Khartoum Jadeed. Accompanied by two male relatives and a female relative, Fatima and her husband drove two-and-a-half hours to Tawila Hospital. The trip cost about five dollars per person, but for Fatima and many others in the area, there is no hospital closer to where they live.
Currently, 62 MSF staff and 15 MoH staff are working in Tawila Hospital. In January and February of this year, the two partners provided outpatient consultations for more than 6,000 people, vaccinations for 770 women and children, antenatal consultations for 750 women, and nutritional care for 246 children under the age of five.
