Aug 11, 2023

BUJUMBURA August 11th (ABP) – Dirty-hand diseases such as bacillary dysentery and cholera, malaria, sexually transmitted diseases and those related to malnutrition are the main diseases threatening displaced people in Gatumba, Sobel camp, in Maramvya zone. This was indicated on Monday, August 7, 2023, by those responsible for health monitoring, on a daily basis.

They added that those displaced people do not have the means to seek treatment, giving the example of examinations recommended to them but which are not carried out for lack of money. These are in particular the examinations that are done outside the camp, such as radiography, they underlined.

They also deplored the fact that the non-governmental organization, Actions Médior, gives medicines in small quantities, 50 syrups for hundreds of children and they specified that this NGO Actions Médior distributes the medicines to the Maramvya camps, Kinyinya II, Rukaramu, Kirekura and Maramvya Health Center. That NGO only gives what it has, they noted, while asking that there be enough medicine, deploring that it is heartbreaking to have patients without being able to treat them.
