In April 2014, an estimated 90,000 people fleeing violence in South Sudan had settled in Ethiopia’s Gambella region.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is providing assistance in four different locations. In Lietchuor camp, home to 44,000 refugees, MSF has set up an inpatient department with an intensive therapeutic feeding center (85 beds), an out-patient department and a maternity ward.
