JUBA

In South Sudan, massive flooding has affected nearly a million people, leaving many stranded in their villages and cut off from essential health services. Here, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) logistics coordinator Kim Phillips describes the situation on the ground in the northeast of the country. "We’re doing our best to move people who need further medical care out of the area. Our biggest concern at the moment, however, is the risk of a cholera outbreak. We’re also on the lookout for an increase in cases of diarrhea and for a spike in patients with malaria.
