Ikram N'gadi
MSF has set up a tent clinic at the port of Augusta, providing 24 hour medical care to the new arrivals. The urgent cases are taken directly to the hospital upon arrival.

The majority of the medical problems the MSF team encounters are related to the journey people undertake to leave their countries: minor traumas due to unsafe trip conditions, skin diseases due to lack of hygiene (for example in detention centres in Libya), respiratory tract infections, dehydration, gastrointestinal problems due to the quality of water and food.
