Scholars & Gentlemen

In early March 2015, a wave of xenophobic attacks occurred across South Africa, with nearly 10 people killed, many with extreme acts of violence.

An MSF team is actively providing medical and water and sanitation services to three camps in KwaZulu Natal – in Isipingo, Chatsworth and Phoenix – coordinating closely with the Department of Health (DoH) to ensure regular mobile clinics twice weekly for consultations and treatment, ensuring referrals to hospitals and providing medication chronic conditions like HIV and TB. The team’s objective is to provide supportive care where gaps in the response are identified for medical care, water and sanitation services and help for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence, while supporting elements of improved camp management.

Scholars & Gentlemen produced this series of short films for Médecins Sans Frontières.
