Mauritania: Mbera refugee camp’s only hospital to close

Fears a refugee camp will be left without medical care after Doctors Without Borders pulls out.

by

    The only hospital in Mbera refugee camp - home to 57,000 Malians who have sought refuge in Mauritania - will close in just a few weeks.

    Doctors without Borders is pulling out as planned, after six years.

    But without a confirmed replacement, refugees fear they'll lose vital services that are keeping people safe.
