Giving Birth in Central African Republic 2014
Sonia's delivery went well.

Sonia is 21 years old. She came to the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) hospital in M’Poko camp to deliver in the proximity of the Bangui international airport. Last December, while Sonia was more than 7 months pregnant, a wave of extreme violence struck Bangui, the capital of Central African Republic, obliging her to flee her neighborhood and seek refuge at the M’Poko camp. Today, the M’Poko Camp hosts around 40,000 people. The assistance is insufficient. People living there lack water, food and shelters while the rainy season approaches.

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