Between 16 and 20 May an MSF warehouse in Khartoum was looted and occupied by armed men, with medical supplies, fuel and vehicles stolen or stripped of tires and more. Medicines were spoiled.  After the looting fridges were unplugged and medicines removed. The entire cold chain was ruined so the medicines are spoiled and can’t be used to treat anyone

About MSF

We provide medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare. Our teams are made up of tens of thousands of health professionals, logistic and administrative staff - most of them hired locally. Our actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of impartiality, independence and neutrality.


International Activity Report 2021

The whole world will certainly remember 2020 as the year of the coronavirus outbreak. It increased pressure on already fragile health systems, and seriously complicated humanitarian response. But the virus did not eradicate conflict, natural disasters, population displacement or epidemics. Consequently, for our teams, 2020 was one of the most demanding years in almost 50 years of activities.
