February 18, 2015

On their journey through the Balkans to seek safety and assistance in Europe, many asylum-seekers, refugees, and migrants become stranded in forests and abandoned buildings in Serbia. They struggle through the cold weather without sufficient food or shelter, and have limited access to basic medical care.

Since the end of November 2014, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been responding to a spike in measles cases in the Yida refugee camp, in South Sudan’s Unity State.

Over the past four years, the security situation in northeast Nigeria has steadily worsened, as the militant group Boko Haram has gained in both strength and audacity. In 2014, bombings in Maiduguri killed and wounded scores of people. Boko Haram attacked the town twice last year as well, and, on the night of January 24, 2015, they attacked again. The next day they took control of Mongono, a town 100 kilometers [about 62 miles] further north. All but one of Maiduguri’s main access roads are now closed.

A brutal stretch of winter has just passed, but Syrian refugees living in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley are still struggling amidst the deplorable living conditions they’ve endured for years now. The season is almost irrelevant at this point. If it’s winter, they must contend with frigid nights and heavy snowfalls that often collapse their flimsy tents.
