Construction of Ceelnimcoon's new health post

Ceelmlidgaan is a small village located in 40km far from Ceel-afweyn village, which it is population is a pastoralism community, casual labour and small businesses (e.g., shops and teashops) are the major livelihood sources in Ceelmidgaan. During focus group discussion it was further reported that most households spend their household income to buy food for their households, pay for the school and madrasa fees for their children and also to buy for other basic needs like clothes. This part looked at different levels of social and economic status of the community as well as the general understanding of what creates wealth and poverty in Ceelmidgaan village. Drawing from the Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) undertaken in Ceelmidgaan village, there is an indication that the Ceelmidgaan community is mostly composed of poor class (20%), followed by about (50%) being considered middle class, 20% being considered rich with very few falling in the category of very rich (3%). It is important to note that the proportions represented here are mean values computed by averaging various approximated values based on the community’s perspectives of their community and understanding of what constitutes wealth and poverty.The public resources (e.g., school, mosque, grazing areas, water wells and etc) are owned and accessed by the all-community members, while the private resources (berkads, small businesses, etc) are owned by individuals but accessible by any community member who can afford to pay for the services rendered there. Notably, in times of crises, the community depends on Village Development Committees (VDCs) for internal support. The type of support received included: Mobilization of needed resources, local contributions, information sharing, seeking external aid and support, and fundraising. From a social standpoint, both the VDC and traditional elders can be viewed as community internal institutions, therefore this could imply an enhanced level of community empowerment. From the perspectives of old women in Ceelmidgaan village, there has been an observed change in the seasonal availability and quantity of the communal wells and livestock as livelihood resources as a result of climate variations. These climate variations were reported to have contributed to the decreased of HH income, water table and increased incidences of diseases on both human and livestock. According to the Community Adaptation and Action Plans (CAAPs), their first priority is a health and this village community committee decided to construct new health post which will implement it through community fundraising campaigns which will be linked to the Bulshokaab online fundraising platform. The VDC elects three signatory committee who manages the community bank accounts and fundraising sub-committee who will also lead all fundraising campaign activities.
