GENEVA, SWITZERLAND (msf.org) - On Monday, an MSF mobile team finally succeeded in providing emergency medical care to people who sought refuge in the Bangassou mosque, Bangui, Central African Republic. Among the 250 people there, MSF counted 25 wounded and provided first aid care to 10 people before gunshots forced the MSF team to leave. Five of the wounded required surgical intervention. Thirty-four other wounded were treated in the hospital, meaning MSF had treated 60 people in the hospital, and 10 at the mosque – which brings the total to 70 people – since Saturday morning.

MSF is extremely worried about the civilian population of Bangassou. The organisation received confirmation that the displaced people who sought refuge in the hospital and in the mosque had been transferred to the church. The security situation remains extremely volatile and staff can still hear sporadic gunshots. MSF calls again on all parties in the conflict to allow for the deployment of urgent medical aid for civilian and wounded people.
