Anga is a resident of Alindao, Central African Republic (CAR), the city where he has lived all his life. He is a 32-year-old Christian who worked in a slaughterhouse. During the fighting that convulsed Alindao in early May, a fighter tried to cut Anga's throat, but, miraculously, he survived. On May 11, 2017, he was transferred to the hospital in Bambari, a six-hour drive from Alindao, where a Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) team cared for him. Here, he tells his story in his own words.

Djamilou’s testimony illustrates only too well the suffering endured by our Central African teams.
