30-10-2013 Interview

AUDIO SLIDE SHOW: Thousands of people in several areas of western Central African Republic have been forced to flee into the bush, taking with them only what they can carry on their backs. Health-care structures have been looted and health staff have fled, leaving no functioning facilities outside of the capital Bangui, except for those provided by humanitarian organizations. Just back from the field, Romaric Bekourou, a field officer at our delegation in Bangui, describes the situation on the ground and what the ICRC is doing to help.
