Since the start of the conflict in South Sudan, mid December 2013, more than 1,400,000 people have been internally displaced and more than 450,000 have sought refuge in the neighbouring countries, including 190,000 in Gambella region, western Ethiopia. The rainy season has temporarily slowed the stream of people arriving into the camps but flooding has exacerbated the daily life conditions of the refugees. Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is the only medical organization permanently based in Leitchuor camp and makes over 800 consultations per week mainly for malaria, respiratory infections and diarrhea due to the harsh living conditions in the camp.
