Four examples of refugee situations where people are suffering due to the weakness of the system of international protection.
MSF staff recently collected accounts from displaced Afghans gathered at the Iranian border, in two camps, sheltering from the current situation.
MSF is trying to expand its work with international staff to cover all the country. It is doing this completely independently of the warring parties and is seeking out those most in need in the chaos of displacement and conflict.
MSF volunteer Dr Biot has just returned from a two-week trip to Pakistan and Turkmenistan where he tried to assess the dire situation of the Afghan people. These are some of his impressions.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has begun providing medical care, and water and sanitation support to a small group of newly arrived Afghan refugees who are being sheltered in a camp close to the city of Chaman in southern Pakistan, near the border of Afghanistan.

The international medical aid organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) today expanded upon its position on air drops being undertaken by US and British military forces and the need for independent humanitarian relief inside Afghanistan.
Press release, Brussels, October 2 2001 - This week, three charter planes are bringing a total of 115 tons of supplies to the Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) missions in and around Afghanistan. MSF will use these supplies to maintain and reinforce its current programs and to be fully prepared in the event of a new emergency.
Pakistan - Although the major emphasis for MSF has been preparation for the expected influx of refugees, the work is difficult to gauge with a lack of information regarding when the refugees shall start to arrive or what numbers may actually be involved. Over one million refugees is the current estimate.
Afghanistan has been in the headlines a
great deal over the past few months. Various associations and NGOs from
a number of countries have launched joint campaigns aimed at raising public
awareness of the situation there.
