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.
Over three days in December 2008, a total of 420 refugees and migrants made the journey from northern Somalia across the Gulf of Aden to Yemen on dangerously overcrowded smugglers's boats. At least 26 people did not survive.
