song Description:

The International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) says the rising number of people fleeing conflict and the arrival of thousands of migrants are overwhelming public health facilities in Niger. According to the IFRC, more than 400,000 people including some 160,000 children suffering from malnutrition are now in need of emergency health services in Niger’s Diffa region. Niger is one of the poorest countries in the world. The IFRC says, the continued influx of migrants has put pressure on health facilities, reducing access to primary health care and referrals for both displaced and host populations. Euloge Ishimwe is a spokesman for the IFRC. He spoke to WADR’s Adolphus Mawolo on the line from his base in Nairobi.
