Thousands of people in the last few weeks Cameroon I found a shelter across the Logone and Chari rivers Chad Due to ongoing violence. Currently, there are about 100,000 people, the majority of whom are females and children, living in about 20 informal locations. We are mobilizing teams accordingly to provide care for people in need.
“The first interregional conflict between Musgum fishermen and Arab nomads in Cameroon began in August of this year,” said Jesse Gaffrick, head of MSF missions in Chad. “For weeks before the situation settled, we organized a mobile clinic to provide basic medical care to 11,000 refugees in Chad.”
However, on December 8, violence resumed suddenly and cruelly, as it happened in Kousseri, the town of Cameroon on the border with N’Djamena, the capital of Chad.
Forty-three were injured with knives, bullets, or arrows. Twenty-five of them had to be hospitalized in N’Djamena due to poor care in Kousseri.
