    Kibati camp is between the government forces postions and the CNDP rebels, about a kilometer separates them.
    Through our implementing partner Solidarites we started the distribution of plastic sheets, blankets, jerrycans, soap, and cooking sets to thousands in Kibati; these are essential survival items that will ward off diseases such as malaria, respiratory infections, cholera, diarrhea, etc. We aim to serve 3,000 families.
    At the same time we had measles vaccinations continue for 13,000 children in Kibati; like cholera, measles risks spreading rapidly during large population movement and is a major child killer
    With our partner Save the Children we working on reuniting children with their families; 152 children separated from their families identified in Kibati since Oct 27th. Our partner Mercy corps was trucking water for tens of thousands of displaced; hundreds of latrines constructed; and hygiene practices promoted; all these interventions are critical to containing the spread of cholera and diarrhea epidemics.
