Ethiopia - Back to reality

14 September 2015

Brice Garnier speaks about his experience in Ethiopia. He spent one year as MSF's deputy head of mission in the country. Up until August 2015, MSF worked in camps hosting refugees that were fleeing conflict in South Sudan

Garnier explains that the most intense time during his assignment was when the refugees were relocated from Leitchour camp to Jewi camp. “50,000 refugees were living in the most appalling conditions and the authorities found a new site in April. They were relocated really quickly. It took 3 weeks with 4,000 people arriving every day” Garnier said.
