In August 2013, the president of Relief for Africa accompanied the president and CEO of World Medical Relief (WMR) Inc on a trip to Somalia to visit an orthopedic hospital in the Puntland region. RFA partnered with WMR to send two forty- foot containers of medical supplies and equipment worth more than USD 800,000 to Bilcil Boys General Hospital in Armo city, Somalia. The hospital is the first of its kind in Somalia. The Hospital is scheduled to open its doors to the public later this year and for the first time Somalis will not have to travel to neighboring countries for orthopedic surgery.
