Medical coordinator Vanessa Cramond is examining a patient. On Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 June, approximately 11,000 refugees were
relocated from the temporary site known as K18, to another temporary
site next to Jamam refugee camp. MSF provided each family with plastic
sheeting, blankets and high-energy biscuits upon arrival and set up a
mobile clinic. After six centimetres of rain in just an hour and a half
on the night of the 28th, parts of the transit camp were flooded.
Amongst the mud, MSF staff provided consultations in its mobile
clinic, including many for children with diarrhoea, malnutrition or eye
infections.
