“Today was a big day in my life and a big day for Midwives and a big day for Somaliland!
“My daughters – 21 of them! – graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Midwifery.
“The President of Somaliland and other dignitaries were there for the total of 640 students who were graduating from Hargeisa University. Our sincere gratitude goes to the Friends of the Edna Adan Hospital who have sustained us during the past 12 years as well as to DFID for having sponsored the Bachelor of Science course for our midwives. Appreciation and blessings to all who have supported us from around the world.”
- Edna Adan
It was the proudest day for Edna and the Edna Adan Hospital, for the girls, their trainers, their families and for Somaliland.
Here is a video of Margaret Chrichton speaking to THET about her many varied and treasured experiences teaching these Midwives at Edna University Hospital and helping to educate young mothers in Hargeisa.
