ALIMA began running medical programs in Lol State in May 2017. The organization supports the State Hospital in Lol’s capital, Raja, where a hospitalization and care unit has been set up. Medical teams treat children suffering from acute malnutrition, as well as acute diarrhea and respiratory infections.
In July, mobile health teams began offering free care to people living in the villages of Sopo and Mangayat, located outside of Raja town. Staff have so far cared for more than 500 patients. More than 80% were found to be suffering from malaria.
