The mayor of Grande-Synthe sought the assistance of MSF to bring dry and warm conditions to the migrant since the State did not respond to its requests. In this perspective, MSF identified, a month ago, a site with an area of 25,000 m². The objective for MSF is to install on the new site 500 tents, each tent accommodating five people. Priority is also to provide adequate sanitation by installing a sufficient number of toilet, showers and latrines facilities. For example, while there are 32 latrines for 2,500 people in the current camp of Grande-Synthe, it is planned to have on the new site a ratio of one latrine for 20 people.
