After months of walking to escape fighting in Sudan’s Blue Nile state, tens of thousands of refugees arrived in South Sudan to find that they were now on the cruel frontlines of new dangers – malnutrition, poor sanitation, and deadly diseases like malaria.
Heavy rains had washed out the roads, and airplanes became the only option for getting supplies as Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) medical teams scaled up our response – setting up therapeutic feeding centers, vaccinating against deadly outbreaks of disease, and providing clean water.
Your support makes it possible for our teams to overcome obstacles and focus on saving more lives of men, women, and children with nowhere else to turn.
