Congolese refugees wait to receive measles and polio vaccinations for children and tetanus vaccinations for women of childbearing age at the reception center in Kyangwali, Hoima province, Uganda. From December 2017 to March 2018 more than 60,000 refugees crossed Lake Albert to Uganda after fleeing violence in DRC’s Ituri Province. The influx overwhelmed facilities at refugee camps in Uganda, sparking a deadly outbreak of cholera. MSF teams worked on both sides of the lake to care for refugees and curb the spread of the disease.
