A refugee girl waits to have her bandages changed in a Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) tent in Garoua-Boulaï District Hospital in Cameroon. Her family fled the violence in their village on a truck transporting wood. Several were wounded when the truck got into an accident. The refugees were referred to the Cameroon hospital from the MSF hospital in Bouar, Central African Republic (CAR), when the situation became too unstable in the area. Nearly 85 percent of those who died in CAR before any attempt to flee were men (1,863). However, the violence did not spare women, children, or the elderly. There were 209 children under 15 and 227 people over the age of 60 who died because of violence. Survey data and the statements collected by MSF teams in CAR, Chad (where refugees have also sought safety), and Cameroon highlight the breadth of the violence that the populations have experienced — both inside CAR and as they fled the country. Read more: http://bit.ly/1std1C2
