    It has become a common sight in Mogadishu: Armed men, everywhere, some of them protecting MSF’s teams. The coastal capital of Somalia has been reduced to ruins. The situation is improving, but it’s a very slow process. And violence is still the daily lot of the people living here. Find out more about MSF's work in Somalia: www.msf.org.uk/somalia

      The crisis underway in the Central African Republic is not new. It has been silently eating away at the country for the last twenty years. Long before the events of December 2012, it was already suffering from a chronic medical emergency. To make matters worse, Central Africans are now flooding out of their country. At the beginning of April 2012, neighbouring Chad, which has been taking in refugees since the start of the crisis, saw 10,000 people cross its borders in just a few days. Arriving from the north, they tell tales of villages attacked and burnt to the ground and family members murdered. Find out more about our work in CAR: www.msf.org.uk/CAR

            A dramatic shortage of health workers in Malawi, especially in rural areas where more than 80 percent or the population live, is one of the biggest challenges limiting access to healthcare in Malawi. To address this problem, MSF, in collaboration with the Malawi Ministry of Health , introduced the Malamulo Scholarship initiative to train mid-level health workers in the rural district of Thyolo. The scholarships cover tuition fees, accommodation costs, a monthly stipend and a kit of medical gear they receive upon graduation.

                    “If we are not sure that words save, we know that silence kills.” This belief has been upheld by Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) for the past 40 years in our medical work with victims of war, epidemics or natural disasters. This film traces the most significant positions taken by the organisation.This is one way to remember the silent victims of these tragedies which have marked history, but also to pay tribute to those who brought them relief.
