Somali Mother Delivered Baby on Street After She Has Been Denied to Give Birth in Hospital Funded by Germany Government

A Somalia mother was forced to give birth outside a medical facility funded by Germany Government for failing to pay $20 demanded by the staff for midwifery services.
The hospital whose operations are managed by a local NGO WARDI told the woman that unless they money was paid; they could not attend to her. A male staff member carried her out of the facility even as she was about to deliver.

In an interview with Dalsan TV, the woman named Khadra Mohamed 19 Yers old said,
When I arrived at the hospital, a boy alerted a female doctor. I asked her to attend to me as I wait for my father to come and sort out the bill as they had requested.
She added " the doctor then told me to get out of the facility since there was no one accompanying me. She said she would be held responsible should anyone die in her hands. I pleaded with her to attend to be because I was in pain but she was adamant".
"I could not get up from where I was seated. But she told me to move out of the door and that I would be rebooked later. The female doctor continued yelling at me to leave. At this point , a boy carried me in his shoulder and placed me outside. Not even the guards were not willing to help lift me".
