MSF opened its 60-bed SICA Hospital in Bangui in 2017 to provide specialized orthopedic and visceral surgery, physiotherapy, and mental health support to trauma patients. Twenty-eight-year-old Haroun is being treated at SICA after being stabbed multiple times in the chest. Physiotherapy has helped him recover his lung capacity. “The support I received at the hospital allowed me not to sink; not to lose my head,” he said.
