As fighting in the Central African Republic (CAR) continues, thousands of refugees who fled the country have arrived in Cameroon and now lack clean water, decent shelter and food. One in five children suffers from malnutrition. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is present in the district hospital in Garoua-Boulaï, a small town in eastern Cameroon, and undertakes 800 medical consultations per week. In addition MSF has also built latrines and showers, provided access to drinking water.
