1. South Sudan Facing Many Challenges


    from Kelvin Brown Added 52 0 0

    The world's youngest nation is facing challenges on many fronts. A new influx of refugees from the fighting in the Nuba Mountains is now pouring into the biggest refugee camp on the border between South Sudan and Sudan at Yida. Meanwhile, MSF warns Jonglei state is now the “the epicenter of violence” in the country as traditional cattle raiding has evolved over the last 18 months into a new, more violent dynamic, with escalating cases of maiming, rape, and beatings. I recent visited both areas with my colleague, Mike Wooldridge. This is the TV package we filed for the BBC.

    • Treating Yaws among the Aka Pygmies: Episode 1 - Nearly There


      from MSF Access Campaign Added 77 0 0

      The Aka Pygmy communities living in the northern Congo have been ostracised in their home country for many years. They have almost no access to healthcare and, as a result, are still affected by a neglected disease: yaws. MSF recently carried out a campaign for treating this disease, which turned out to be both a logistical feat and a world first in medical terms.

            • Dead End: The Nigerian Gold Rush and Lead Poisoning Crisis


              from Alex Masi Added 371 2 0

              In 2008 as the price of gold began skyrocketing on global markets, a cluster of several villages in Zamfara, northwest Nigeria, became to turn into the centre of a dangerous, uncontrollable gold rush. The villagers’ dreams of wealth soon became real-life nightmares, as mining activity unleashed what Human Rights Watch defined “the worst lead poisoning epidemic in modern history”: since the beginning of 2010, around 460 children under-five have died, while more than 5,000 have been contaminated by lethal levels of toxic lead, released from the stones, crushed to extract the precious metal. An entire generation is slowly being wiped out: those who survive will experience incurable, long-term deficiencies such as blindness, hearing impairment and brain damage. Artisanal mining have contaminated dozens of villages, together with water wells, fields, livestock and homes. Despite the efforts of foreign NGOs such as Medicines Sans Frontiers, Zamfara is now facing a deadly catch-22 situation: being the only profitable activity in the area, miners can't stop digging, but to feed their families they are destroying their own future, and that of their children.
