Emergency in Somalia
Working in Somalia for more than 30 years, MSF scales up its activities. A new program set up in Mogadishu aims to provide assistance to the displaced.

Congo Brazzaville
115,000 refugees from DRC seek shelter in the Likouala region. This adds pressure on the hospital in Bétou, already dealing with the seasonal rise in malaria.

Around 1,000 people live in homes on stilts in the Miramar neighbourhood of Buenaventura. Previously, they did not have access to safe water.
