  • Giving Birth in Central African Republic 2014
March 28, 2014

Estrella has been pregnant and living in a camp for displaced people in Bangui, the capital of Central African Republic, since violence drove her from her neighborhood in the city. The M’Poko Camp, near Bangui international airport, hosts around 40,000 people. The assistance there is insufficient. People lack water, food, and shelter.

MSF is running a field hospital and three health posts in M’Poko Camp. Every day, MSF teams provide more than 1,000 consultations and help at least 10 women give birth. Today Estrella was one of those women.
