Abobo is a rural community in Ethiopia composed of 16 municipalities and numerous tribes found particularly in the Gambela region. If Gambela is one of the poorest areas of the country, Abobo takes the cake since it's very rural and the poverty is even greater than in the city. As we passed through this area we visited the hospital in Abobo and saw hundreds of people there as it is the only one in this part of Ethiopia. There are many people who have to travel from far away to be diagnosed or see a doctor and have to make inhumane trips of several days of walking since they don't have transportation. Many of the patients are accompanied by their families so the Abobo hospital has created a building within the compound which is used by the families of the sick. We stayed there when we went and it wasn't bad. It had the necessary infrastructure, toilets, bathrooms, etc., but the insides were completely empty - there were no beds or furniture. They had just built it though so maybe that is the reason why. It was a really great idea to create a building for the family though because otherwise, they had to wait in the streets while their loved one was being healed.
Abobo's Hospital is located in an area with beautiful vegetation, just like the rest of Ethiopia. Here, everywhere you look you see a spectacular green surrounding that makes you think only of positive things. In addition, the hospital compound itself has some beautiful parks are also very well maintained. In addition to the hospital building and the building used to house the families of the sick. The doctor's house is right next to it as well as the church. The Church is a very simple but very striking because it is painted in a light blue color that gives you a peace impressive. The facade is surrounded by an arcade that come to marvel at the hot season, as it is one of the few places where you find outdoor shade.
