The team in Mocha operated on this child to remove a bullet from the abdomen. Victims wounded by bullets or explosions are often stabilized close to the front line and then transferred to the MSF hospital in Mocha. The journey can take several hours depending on the intensity of fighting and pace of referrals, with many patients arriving in Mocha in critical condition.
