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 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.
