MSF Emergency response

MSF Cross River project started with WASH activities in Obanliku and Boki Local Government Areas (LGAs), namely boreholes and latrines. Medical activities started in the last week of July 2018 with an outpatient clinic at the Comprehensive Health Centre (CHC) in Ikom to serve both the host and refugee community. MSF now operates six mobile clinics namely Adagom, Agbokim, Amana, Bashu, Biajua, and Danare spread across 5 LGAs of Obanlinku, Boki, Ikom, Ogoja and Etung. Addittionally, MSF has dug 6 new boreholes, and repaired 28 hand pumps on existing wells/boreholes in 11 communities.

WASH activities, such as installing and maintaining boreholes, hand-operated pumps and latrines, began when the project opened in June 2018. They were identified as an urgent need for local communities because of the increasing number of refugees living in the area.
