Doctors donate food to refugees in Maiduguri

06 January 2017, 17:48

Maiduguri - Thousands of families in the terror-prone Maiduguri have benefited from a donation of food by an international medical organisation.

Officials disclosed over the past three months, the organisation had distributed 810 tonnes of food enough to feed 26 000 families for two weeks.

“As a medical organisation, it’s not usually MSF’s role to provide people with food,” said Phillippe Le Vaillant, MSF head of mission in Nigeria.

“There are people in desperate need,” said Le Vaillant.

“Other organisations were not stepping in up until now, so MSF was obliged to fill this gap.”

MSF is trucking 80 000 to 100 000 litres of water into Maiduguri every day.

It runs two health facilities and two in-patient therapeutic feeding centre for severely malnourished children.
