In 1 click, help us spread this information :

Ten years after the outbreak of the third civil war in the Central African Republic, MSF has teamed up with photographer Adrienne Surprenant to meet Central African families and try to capture the consequences of these years of violence. Through 15 stories, collected in Bangui and Carnot, the photographic and sound documentary "The Events" highlights the immense destruction within families marked in their memories and in their homes. 

How to live in a devastated country hit by extreme and repeated violence? Where can you find shelter for your family? How to adapt, how to continue to live in the midst of war? And how to rebuild in the moments of relief?

In 2023, nearly 3,000 people will make up the MSF teams in the country, providing paediatric care, trauma surgery and care for patients with HIV/AIDS. After the projection, we will have the opportunity to exchange with Edoardo Rosso who will talk about the context and his experience as an MSF surgeon in Bangui.

The last session dealt with crowdsourcing data: Amrish Baidjoe and Bahaa Aldin Alhaffar spoke to shed light on this subject with concrete examples of the use and implementation of this type of data, particularly in the context of the earthquake that hit Syria and Turkey on 6 February 2023 to locate survivors.
