"Giving a vaccination to my children is very important because it will prevent them from getting diseases," says Mariam Sheikh Abdullahi, mother of six children. "Many refugees are coming now by foot from Somalia passing through the village to go to the refugee camps. It is good that my children get a polio and measles vaccination".
