Our teams have been forced to suspended medical support in Macomia, Mozambique following a recent attack on the village that also resulted in the destruction of our healthcare centre.
Ethiopian migrants trapped in Malawi prisons
Most were on their way to South Africa, hoping to flee harsh poverty and make a better life there. The justice system for migrants in Malawi is unclear: most of these prisoners have finished serving their sentences and were supposed to have been released and repatriated already.
The migrants are detained in harsh condition: there is extensive overcrowding, food is inadequate, and sanitary conditions are precarious. Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is providing medical care in two of these prisons.
