Elizair Djamba from Chad is the MSF Supervisor for the distribution project in Bokoro, Chad.
“The children who come to our distribution sites should be healthy, but are at risk of getting malnourished. For the first time in Bokoro this year, we’re giving these children rations of specially formulated supplementary food and giving them a chance to stay healthy.
“The work is hard. We have to travel a lot and long distances and the state of the roads often aren’t good. When we arrive, the women and their babies are always waiting for us so we make sure we’re out of the MSF base by 6.30 am every day. We can’t leave people waiting in the heat, so this also means there’s no time to take a lunch break. We arrive in the villages early and we keep working until all the mums have everything they need.”
