From the Field: Dr. Hernando Garzon, Puerto Rico Hurricane Response Team
Description: DONATE: http://bit.ly/2fv0MH4 Dr. Hernando Garzon updates on the situation in Puerto Rico, where International Medical Corps has a team, and is partnering with the Puerto Rico Primary Health Association, a network of 62 health clinics focused on providing care to low-income families across the island. Power outages continue to make it difficult to operate health facilities, with many clinics resorting to limiting the hours they are open or providing care in smaller spaces that can be powered by a generator. Maintaining a cold chain for many urgently needed medications, especially those for chronic care, has been a challenge. International Medical Corps is providing logistical support to help urban and rural clinics across the island get back to caring for patients. This includes providing generators to clinics and San Juan-area hospitals that would otherwise have severely limited or no operating capacity. We are also working with a partner organization to restore internet and communications capabilities for the Puerto Rico Primary Health Association and distributing solar lights to clinics. Our team is also looking at how we can support the supply of medications across the island, especially those that require cold storage and transport. As immediate relief efforts begin shift into recovery, International Medical Corps will support the longer-term needs of health facilities with infrastructure repairs and other assistance. With homes destroyed and access to savings limited by power supplies and other storm-related issues, families—particularly low-income families—are struggling to meet immediate needs, including buying medication for short-term use or chronic care. We will work with facilities to offer patient subsidies for some medications to help so families meet their ongoing health needs. All health care facility staff were impacted directly by Hurricane Maria, including many who lost their own homes. International Medical Corps will also work with the health facilities to provide much-needed relief to health care and other facility staff so they are able to return to work caring for Puerto Ricans. We are also preparing to distribute hygiene kits to clinics so families have basic necessities that help prevent the spread of communicable disease. “This is the first time where I’ve seen such wall-to-wall, corner-to-corner, 100 percent population affected. So many people are reliant on a health care delivery chain that’s been interrupted. That chain relies on power and fuel to move goods and meds to places where the patients can access them. The clinics where they might normally receive care in, likewise, need to be up and running.” – Dr. Robert Fuller, Puerto Rico Emergency Response Team Member

Lebanon: ‘Recycled house’ renovation brings light to Syrian refugees (TRAILER)
Description: Full Story: https://youtu.be/3pvTziH7-fU Can recycling improve the lives of refugees? Of the more than one million Syrian refugees who live in Lebanon, UNHCR has found that more than two in five live in dwellings that do not meet minimum humanitarian standards. One Beirut NGO has set out to change that, using eco-friendly methods and “upcycling”. They started with the home of Haela and her four children – a one-room apartment which got a radical, and “green”, makeover.

CONGO | "When you're displaced, your thoughts can be too"
Description: “When you’re displaced from your home, your thoughts can be displaced too,” says Sifa Clementine. Sifa oversees MSF’s mental health activities in Mweso, a small town in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Today, Sifa and her team are running a theatre production on sexual violence for the local community. The setting is the displacement camp that sits across the road from Mweso’s General Hospital, where Sifa and her team work. The actors in the play are all MSF mental health counsellors. Over the course of the next three hours, the team connects with the 200-strong audience through song, dance and drama. At the end of the play, there’s a valuable moment for the audience to reflect on what they’ve seen, as a form of group discussion. The event is designed to inform the people of the camp that MSF is in the community, and is there to listen. “When we see a problem in the community, we act out these problems and educate in this way. “Often, a person's behaviour is affected by what they have gone through. That is when behaviour changes." Referring to the character of the daughter in the play, Sifa goes on to explain: “In her village, for example, she didn't drink alcohol, but now she does. She steals food in the house and she sells it for drinks. “The sketches show people what can happen, and how they can overcome these problems.” To find out more, visit mweso.msf.org.uk Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare.

Surviving abuse in Libya, after flight from Cote d'Ivoire FGM
Description: Over 200 million women and girls across the world have been subjected to female genital mutilation, while 20,000 seek asylum from FGM-practicing countries in the EU every year. Aisha*, not her real name, was seven years old when she underwent the procedure in her native Ivory Coast. Her eldest daughter was four when it happened to her. Last year Aisha fled with her youngest daughter to save her from being excised. But in Libya, she was caught in a nine-month-long nightmare, where she experienced repeated abuse and witnessed the killings of people detained with her. UNHCR calls for unrestricted humanitarian access in Libya to prevent risks of sexual and gender-based violence and to offer psycho-social support to survivors.
