Motivated and inspired by the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, thousands of Libyans took to the streets in the major cities, calling for democratic reforms and for the end of corruption within Muammar Gaddafi’s regime. The brutal repression by the regime and the subsequent escalation of violence lead to a civil war that still continues. Trapped between both sides, civilians are the first people suffering its consequences.+ More details

Month in Focus showcases some of MSF's work around the world. In July, we are at the severely overcrowded Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya, as drought and violence in Somalia led hundreds of thousands of Somalis to flee. We return to Misrata, Libya, where the victims of the recent conflict are not only the war-wounded; women, children and people with chronic conditions have been sidelined by the overwhelmed healthcare system. In Shousha camp, Tunisia, MSF is providing medical and psychological care to Sub-Saharan refugees who escaped the Libyan conflict. Poverty and lack of stability in their countries of origin prevent them from returning home. We visit Jordan where MSF offers specialised care to victims of the war in Iraq and other marginalised minorities like Yemenis and Palestinians. Then, we join MSF in the newly independent South Sudan, where major challenges lie ahead of the new government as the country desperately lacks healthcare infrastructure and skilled health workers. Finally, we go Colombia, where MSF is filling the gaps in healthcare by treating drug-resistant TB patients.+ More details

A small sign at the entrance of the bomb shelter in the middle low class neighborhood of Katamonim in West Jerusalem is the only reminder of a boxing club. The over decorated stairs, full of pictures of boxers are like a tube straight to the underground boxing clubs of Russia. Most of the members of the club are emigrants or sons of emigrants from the former Soviet Union,still the club is a micro cosmos of the minorities of Jerusalem. You can find Palestinians,Mizrahi Jews and new emigrants, coexisting in a tough but friendly atmosphere. The club empowers marginalized youth and becomes a shelter to avoid street violence. Gershon Luxemburg is convinced that through sports one learns to coexist in peace even when a sport involves Arabs and Jews confronting each other in the ring and believes in a bridge of coexistence, and his club was a good example during the last years of conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.
