Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been providing medical aid to South Sudanese refugees in Ethiopia since January. Teams treat refugees when they arrive at transit centers and at Lietchuor camp. The organization set up an 85-bed hospital and a health center at Lietchuor and a 75-bed hospital at Itang. Antoine Foucher, MSF’s head of mission in Ethiopia, describes the urgency of the refugees’ situation.
Are South Sudanese refugees still streaming into Ethiopia?
Following the decision of the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to deport “illegal” foreign workers, 154,837 Ethiopian men, women, and children have already arrived at Bole Airport carrying whatever they managed to salvage in sacks, cardboard boxes, and suitcases. They are returning home, either by force or voluntarily. All of them have come from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), where they lived and worked in all manner of jobs, such as domestic workers or nurses. Some were born there while others left Ethiopia when they were very young.
