Refugees from Blue Nile State, Sudan, have fled over the border into Maban, South Sudan. The rainy season is starting which will make transportation more difficult. The international medical aid agency, Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is providing health care and some water but it is calling for other agencies to increase their support.

Your donations make MSF's work possible. They help pregnant women give birth in safety, treat young children with malaria and provide surgery for people wounded by bombs and bullets. They give us independence from political interference and red tape and allow us to act without delay or obstruction. Tendai Mlhanga, an MSF ICT officer in Zimbabwe, was surprised that so many donations came from people such as you: "I was touched that some people would give up something that big and actually use it to help somebody they don't know. "That really touched me. I would encourage people to not stop giving. Last year we were able to treat 49,000 people. This year I hope we can treat more becuase, definitely, in this country, more people need it." To become a donor, visit msf.me/IDeSdu.+ More details

Chenai Mathabire, an MSF clinic manager in Zimbabwe, was surprised that so many donations came from people such as you: "A dollar for us can mean the difference between life and death. So the money that [donors] are sending is really useful, so please keep supporting us and, surely, we will make a difference together." To become a donor, visit msf.me/IDeSdu.+ More details
Médecins Sans Frontières deals in big numbers; we treat millions of patients in over 60 countries, and have 25 offices which employ thousands of staff. We never forget the people behind these huge numbers – the individual patients who rely on us and every member of staff or volunteer who make MSF so special. Yet there is another huge number which affects everything MSF does – each year we work hard to raise over US$1 billion to pay for our work. So where does that money come from? And how do we show the same respect for the individuals who trust us to spend their donations as we show for our patients and staff? We need to remember that there is a person and a story behind every dollar that MSF raises. To become a donor yourself, visit http://msf.me/IDeSdu+ More details
Tens of thousands of refugees from Sudan have gathered in a camp 18 kilometres from the town of Jamam, in South Sudan. The road is difficult to negotiate when it's dry, almost impossible after rainfall. MSF is providing water from a basin. That basin is expected to run dry in around two weeks, making this camp, strewn along four kilometres of the road, not a solution in the mid term.
