Those are the words of my colleague Adamo. And sadly, what he described is a reality in many other places.
As a medical and humanitarian organisation working in some of the world’s most climate-vulnerable settings, teams from Médecins Sans Frontières treat patients experiencing the health impacts of the climate emergency first-hand.
This crisis hits the most vulnerable people the hardest. We know, because we see them in our waiting rooms.
From Niger to Mozambique, from Honduras to Bangladesh, we treat patients for infectious diseases like malaria and dengue; for malnutrition; and for health issues linked to extreme weather events.
