"These patients’ injuries were too severe to be treated in a tukul – they required treatment at a hospital with an operating theatre, surgeons and anaesthetists. In the next 72 hours, our team evacuated 36 patients for surgical care.
What amazed me the most during this emergency response was the work of our South Sudanese colleagues on the ground who, despite their own suffering, were committed to help others. Seeing my colleagues being so dedicated to serving people deprived of essentials services and basic living conditions is what motivates me to continue my work with Médecins Sans Frontières."
