Somalia has suffered a drought-triggered famine in the past year which has left many women and children vulnerable.
Due to the long-lasting famine women and children require better medical aid and resources. Many children suffer malnutrition and are threatened by hunger and even death.
Countless children die either at the hospitals in the refugee camps or while traveling to seek refuge.
In Somalia's capital Mogadishu the Banaadir Hospital is the only hospital for women and children and receives patients from all around the country.
Many refugees travel to Mogadishu with their children to the Banaadir hospital seeking medical care and refuge.
The Banaadir Hospital was built in 1980s by the Chinese but over the decades of war, it has suffered and is today almost dilapidated.
Patients, especially children, receive check-ups and treatment in the hall and the hospital is overcrowded by people waiting to receive medical attention.
According to hospital staff children die on a daily basis due to poor sanitary conditions and shortage in medication.
Several Muslim nations have set up charities to provide aid for Somalia during the month of Ramadan.
Over tens of thousands of children have died due to the famine and the number is expected to rise.
