Somalis receive medical treatment at an outpatient hospital run by the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), on Wednsday, August 17 in Mogadishu, Somalia. More than 10,000 people are treated monthly at AMISOM's three hospitals in Mogadishu. Ugandan doctors there say that increasingly many of the ailments, especially among children, are related to malnutrition. The UN estimates that more than 100,000 people have fled to Mogadishu in the last months due to famine and drought conditions in the countryside.
