Gallery: Central African Republic - Situation at Bangui airport remains dire

MSF’s mobile emergency team is providing round-the-clock medical care at Bangui airport, Central African Republic,  following an outbreak of violence that has swept through the capital since 5 December. MSF’s airport clinic is addressing the medical needs of more than 40,000 displaced people who have sought refuge at the airport.

“It’s a very difficult situation. Sanitary conditions are deplorable and people are living in fear,” said Rosa Crestani, MSF’s emergency coordinator in Bangui. “Having fled their homes, they are now seeking shelter underneath airplane wings or wherever else they can find it”.
