Sorella was fetching water at a fountain next to a hospital when armed men shot her.

The first bullet hit a 13-year-old girl,” says Sorella. “I fell to the ground and they kept shooting. A bullet hit my ankle. Another bullet hit a child of two or three who was in a shelter next to the hospital wall. He died instantly.”

In the Central African Republic, the outlook for the coming year is not encouraging. Thousands of people have no access to medical assistance, and many will die from preventable diseases such as malaria, diarrhoea and respiratory infections.

Our medical teams are treating people injured by the ongoing violence, as well as pregnant women or those with preventable or chronic diseases whose conditions have been aggravated by an inability to reach medical care in time.
