Paul Critchley, head of mission in South Sudan for Médecins Sans Frontières (#MSF), told Agence France-Presse: “I managed to make contact yesterday with one of our South Sudanese employees in the #Leer surroundings, who told me that he had been immersed in muddy water for up to nine hours to avoid bullets flying overhead. He recovered the bodies of two dead children from the swamp and reported that a woman from the group had been abducted. Someone else was looking after her baby.”

Take a look at our work around the world and see what we really do. This month we take a look at the earthquakes in Nepal, the conflict in Yemen, survivors of Boko Haram violence in Chad and burns patients in Haiti.

We also explain the situation for migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea and hear from an MSF project coordinator recently returned from Iran.

Thousands of people have died this year attempting to cross the Mediterranean from North Africa.

The charity Medecins sans Frontieres is running its own rescue operation.

Erna Rijnierse, an MSF doctor aboard a rescue ship - or Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) - has been keeping a diary of her experience for us.

This is the story of her first three weeks at sea.

MSF can confirm that following a series of recent incidents in the area of Dadaab, one third of its staff has been relocated to Nairobi. This is a preventive measure, which will unfortunately have a direct impact on our ability to provide the much needed medical assistance to the refugees. It means that 800 refugees will not receive daily essential medical care.  Three health posts out of four have already been closed as a result and some medical services such as antenatal care have been suspended.  MSF will continue to evaluate the situation hoping that security in the camps for the refugees and our staff can be assured. Once guarantees have been obtained, MSF can return to full activities as soon as possible.

The reduction in reported cholera cases is largely due to the concerted approach to contain the spread of the outbreak through intensified measures to promote hygiene.

I have been living and working in Médecins Sans Frontières’ hospital since the clashes began in March. I’ve only been able to leave the hospital twice since then. The first time was to refer a patient to a specialised hospital as his life was in danger. Thankfully, he is now alive and well

Four people wearing surgical gloves, goggles and face masks marched into a branch of PC World in London last autumn.

Despite their garb, it wasn't some kind of robbery. The masked men and women were the technological arm of the humanitarian aid charity, Médecins Sans Frontières, and they had come to test tablet computers for the Ebola outbreak in West Africa (in full gear, to really get a feel for the hardware). It may have been a memorable shift for the shop assistant serving them, but for MSF's techies, it's was all in a day's work.
