MAGNA activities around the world

In 2019 MAGNA teams provided health and humanitarian assistance to those facing extreme hardships in 6 countries.

The main part of our work in 2019 was again immediate situations responses: reacting to epidemics like the famine in South Sudan, medical aid to victims of violence in Yumbi province of the Democratic Republic of Congo, providing help to those fleeing war in Lebanon and Iraq, treating children and their families around the world, and doing everything we can to improve patient care regardless of where we’re working.

The Democratic Republic of Congo has survived decades of several overlapping crises and serious constraints on medical capacity. 2018 witnessed a further increase in extreme violence and frequent occurrence of far-reaching diseases.

One of these in 2019 was the conflict in the Yumbi territory.

Responding to the Yumbi situation, MAGNA set up 4 mobile river clinics, equipped 23 local hospitals and clinics with such health supplies as basic medicines, health care materials, and special kits to treat diseases like diarrhoea, malaria, PEP, and cholera.

Our teams also secured nutritional care of children under 5, mobilized the community to actively ascertain cases of moderate and severe acute malnutrition, and provided emergency vaccination in response to a measles epidemic. For mother-and-child care we arranged for emergency obstetric interventions, and we provided general assistance to vulnerable individuals whose human rights had been violated.

The patient comes first for us

Health projects are primarily aimed at saving lives and alleviating the suffering of those in need. Armed conflicts and unstable political situations have a devastating impact on ordinary people. Consequences, often associated with inadequate local health services, commonly include direct violence, forced displacement, epidemics, famine, and psychological trauma. Providing medical assistance to victims of conflicts and crises is MAGNA workers’ top priority. Alleviating suffering from infectious diseases neglected by local structures is another major area of ​​MAGNA’s focus.
