Quotes

...They don’t question why, after five months of talk, and more than 1,500 known deaths, the epidemic is still raging. They don’t ask, "Where is the money donors are pledging? Where are the boots on the ground?"
...that "many of the inhabitants have left the city for surrounding areas or even in the direction of Bouca," a nearby town located further south. "Right now the situation seems calmer, and perhaps in a few weeks people will be back in their homes" she added
...Joanne Liu, MSF's international president. "Working in Syria late last year, I saw children suffering from blast wounds and preventable diseases, families without proper shelter and women who could not deliver their babies in a safe environment. There is generally a lack of humanity with respect to Syria because when we talk about it, we usually talk about figures. This project bears witness to the personal toll of a brutal, relentless conflict."
