Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has reinforced its teams on the Serbian side of the border with Hungary following the closure of the Hungarian border, which is leading to a rapidly increasing number of refugees stranded on the Serbian side. Part of the MSF team that was working in Roszke (Hungary) for the last several weeks is currently supporting the teams in Horgos (Serbia) now that the Roszke camp is empty.

Twenty years ago, the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) team in Kigali saw the town descend into violence. These were the first days of what would go on to become known as genocide. Throughout their stay, the organization's humanitarian principles were often violated by the perpetrators of the genocide. This lead to the startling realization of the limits of humanitarian action. For the first and only time in its history, MSF made a public demand for armed intervention, pointing out a very simple truth: doctors can't stop genocide.

Bujumbura, 13 June 2005 – Medical staff from the international medical aid organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) have been denied access to Songore, a transit camp for some 7,000 Rwandese that fled to Burundi earlier in May. The MSF clinic inside the camp is now guarded by Burundese military and medical staff cannot enter the premises, depriving the remaining population from medical care. Before being denied access, MSF was conducting more than 100 medical consultations a day in Songore.
