Estrella is about to deliver. After arriving at the MSF field hospital, she is examined by the medical teams. The complex cases are referred to another MSF structure equipped to carry out C-sections when need be.

Estrella lives in the displaced camp of M’Poko, in the proximity of the Bangui international airport. Following last December’s wave of violence, thousands of people sought refuge in this spontaneous site. Today, around 40,000 people live here. Water, food and shelters are insufficient.

Since December, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) intervenes in the camp. Today, through a field hospital and three health posts in the camp, every day the MSF teams provide over 1000 consultations and help at least 10 women like Estrella to give birth daily.
