MSF au camp de refugies de Yida, Soudan du Sud (Mai 2012). *** Local Caption *** In South Sudan, MSF is present in Yida, next to the border with Sudan. This village hosts a camp of refugees who escaped shellings in South Kordofan.
MSF set up a small hospital and a clinics in the refugees’camp in Yida.
A new influx of 30,000 refugees crossed the border from Sudan’s Blue Nile
State into South Sudan’s Upper Nile State over a period of about 2 weeks.
They join the 70,000 refugees who are already hosted in overcrowded refugee
camps. With no space left in the camps, and life-threatening shortages of
water, a place of refuge with the basic life-sustaining essentials needs
urgently to be found. MSF is providing medical care and treating 90,000
litres of water per day in their temporary gathering-place under trees in
the harsh environment of this remote corner of South Sudan.
