KAMPALA, UGANDA/NEW YORK, JUNE 20, 2017—Nearly one million South Sudanese refugees have fled to Uganda to escape the violence in their country, yet the international aid response is failing to meet their basic needs for food and water, raising the risk of a medical emergency, the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said today, ahead of an international summit to raise funds for Uganda's refugee response.

Hundreds of thousands of people who fled intense violence in South Sudan now live in refugee settlements like Bidi Bidi and Imvepi in neighboring Uganda. Despite this massive influx, the international humanitarian response is still woefully insufficient, especially when it comes to treating survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). Since March 2017, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has provided care for survivors of SGBV in Bidi Bidi and launched similar services in Imvepi in May.

FEBRUARY 27, 2017—Thousands of people trying to flee Eritrea are suffering from inhumane, violent, and deadly treatment as the European Union increasingly collaborates with the governments of Eritrea, Libya, Sudan, and Ethiopia to stop them from reaching European shores, according to a new report by the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).

"Libya is a very dangerous place. There are a lot of armed people. People are killed and kidnappings are common. Arriving in Tripoli, we were locked in a house with 600 to 700 other people. We had no water to wash ourselves, we had very little food, and we were forced to sleep on top of each other. It was very difficult for my daughter—she fell sick many times. There was a lot of violence. I was beaten with bare hands, with sticks, and with guns. If you move, they beat you. If you talk, they beat you. We spent months like that, being beaten every day."
