Nigeria: After the attack in Rann on monday, 8000 people seek shelter in Bodo, Cameroon
An MSF medical team arrived in Bodo on Tuesday 15 January. There they found more than 8’000 people, (estimate) mostly women and young children. 1’200 people have been able to settle inland and more than 7’000 people are still at the river (border). But people continue to arrive. They have no shelter, no fresh water and fled Rann with no belongings. The local community organized solidarity to provide them with some food. MSF teams are bringing medical supplies and are preparing to support the local health centre there. MSF teams are planning to return on wednesday with emergency food, shelter and a watsan team to support them. This is devastating news for the people in Rann who have already suffered so much.
