Somalia has been in the grip of a civil war since 1990 and has had no stable government for most of the time since then. Consequently, there is little statistical information on the prevalence of HIV/AIDS nor of infant mortality. Much of the work of SOS Children's Villages is focussed on bringing emergency medical help the people of Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia. This has included feeding and vaccination programmes and medical treatment as well as a temporary camp for orphaned children and an emergency hospital, often operating under shellfire.
