    Age 32
    Already in 1976, Annalena Tonelli became responsible for a World Health Organization (WHO) pilot project for treating tuberculosis in nomadic people.
    More Details Hide Details So, Annalena invited nomadic tuberculotic patients to camp in front of the Rehabilitation Centre for Disabled she was running with other female volunteers who joined her to serve poliomyelitic, blind, deaf-mute, and disabled people. This approach guaranteed patients' compliance in taking the therapy over the needed six-month treatment, and it was adopted by WHO as DOTS (Directly Observed Therapy Short). In 1984, following political and inter-clan clashes, the army of Kenya started a repression campaign against Somali clans in the Wajir area. The public denunciation of Annalena Tonelli helped to stop the killings. Arrested and taken in front of a martial court she was told that the fact she escaped two ambushes was not a guarantee to survive a third one, and she was forced to leave Kenya. Annalena Tonelli went to Somalia, first in Merca (where, in 1995, it was assassinated Graziella Fumagalli, an Italian medical doctor working for Caritas International) and then in Borama in the Somaliland region. Here, her work included: a 250-bed hospital, a Special Education School (with 263 students) for deaf, blind and disabled children (a unique school in all Somalia), a program for eradication of female genital mutilation (infibulation), cure and prevention of HIV/AIDS, aid to outcasts, orphans and poor people.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1969
    Age 25
    After "six years of service to poor people of the suburbs, to orphan children, mentally or physically disabled or abused kids" of her own town, in 1969, the then 25-year-old Annalena Tonelli went to Africa supported by the Committee Against World Hunger of Forlì, that she had helped to start its activity.
    More Details Hide Details At first, she worked as a high school teacher in Wajir, a semi-desert region in North-East Kenya, inhabited by nomadic people of Somali origin. The dismal local community health condition pushed her into medical studies: she qualified in Kenya for tuberculosis treatment, in United Kingdom for Tropical Medicine and Public Health, and in Spain for leprosy.
