Life amidst a protracted crisis: Lake Chad

MSFALB1500

Sara Creta, Field Communications Manager for MSF in Chad, is on her way to Baga Sola and Bol, where MSF teams are providing medical care to displaced people and the resident population affected by the consequences of Boko Haram violence. Follow her daily picture diary to discover how people live in this region on the lake’s shore and what they have been through.
Violence by Boko Haram in the Lake Chad region continues. Coupled with the Chadian Government's response, thousands in the region have had to flee their homes. MSF teams are based in Baga Sola, Bol, Liwa and Kiskawa from where they run several mobile clinics providing basic healthcare and mental health support to the displaced and local population. The most common medical conditions seen in MSF clinics are linked to the difficult living conditions and the lack of access to clean water. MSF is also supporting the health centre in Tchoukoutalia. Teams are also working in the Dar Es Salam camp providing mental healthcare to refugees who have fled violence in Nigeria.
In Bol regional hospital, MSF, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, has been providing free healthcare in the paediatric and maternity wards, focusing on deliveries, obstetric complications, neonatal care and nutrition. MSF is also working in the operating theatre. In 2016, teams carried out 378 deliveries, 74 of which were caesarean sections. MSF also provided nutritional and paediatric services to over 1,000 children.
