‘I was relieved that diabetes was finally being addressed’ - Hiba Suleiman Arwale
Hiba Suleiman Arwale lives in Nasa-Hablood, a camp for internally displaced people east of Hargeisa. She is the mother of seven children, four of whom have diabetes.
“I had never heard of diabetes before. As a result, I had no idea what was wrong with my children. They appeared to be happy and playing one moment, and then they were lying on the ground, unable to walk the next.”
Hiba Suleiman Arwale and her family are beneficiaries of WDF's 2022 fundraiser project, Increasing awareness and providing diabetes care in vulnerable communities in Hargeisa, Somaliland
