PHOTOS: Mozambican refugees flee growing violence to Kapise village, Malawi
Thursday, February 18, 2016 —
Doctors Without Borders this week asked South African photographer James Oatway to visualsie situation facing over 5,800 Mozambicans (1,000 families) who have fled increasing violence in northern Tete Province, and are now existing in inhumane conditions in a makeshift camp in Kapise village in neighboring Malawi, 300 meters from the border. This week, South African photographer James Oatway visited the camp on MSF’s request to capture camp conditions, which are well below minimum humanitarian standards. The refugees are forced to compete for scarce resources (water, sanitation) with the existing 150 families already living in the village.
