Marion Robinson worked as a psychologist at the MSF hospital in Qayyarah, a town some 70 kilometres from Mosul, in Iraq’s Ninewa governorate. It had been under the control of the Islamic State (IS) group for two and a half years before the Iraqi army retook control of the area at the end of August 2016.
MSF warns of large-scale humanitarian disaster in northeastern Nigeria
An MSF team was able to reach the town of Banki, near the border with Cameroon. Approximately 15,000 people displaced by the conflict are living isolated and cut off in this half-destroyed town. As many as one in 12 of the population may have died in the last six months. Nearly one in three children is malnourished.
To meet the immediate needs of the population, MSF has provided emergency food assistance.
