Barcelona, Geneva, Nairobi, 18 July 2013 – It is with great relief that Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) confirms that Montserrat Serra and Blanca Thiebaut, abducted from the Dadaab refugee camp, in Kenya, on 13 October 2011, have been released. Both are safe and healthy and keen to join their loved ones as soon as possible. MSF will offer continued support to Mone and Blanca and their families. As we are still working on the return of our colleagues to their homes, we ask you to respect their need for privacy at this time.
MSF wishes to thank everyone involved in securing their safe release.
Once again, MSF strongly condemns this attack on humanitarian workers who were in Dadaab offering lifesaving medical assistance to thousands of refugees.
