MSF is supporting the hospital in Uvira, in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo, after a fuel tanker crashed and exploded in the nearby village of Sange on Friday 2 July. The crash killed up to 242 people and left countless people injured. Over the weekend 43 people with severe burns were admitted to Uvira General Hospital, while three more people were transferred on Monday 5 July from a hospital in Lemura to Uvira. Two MSF doctors are at the hospital helping the Ministry of Health treat the wounded. MSF has also sent medical supplies to the hospital, and provided transport to the two referral hospitals in the provincial capital, Bukavu. Twelve patients with severe burns are being treated at Bukavu’s General Hospital, and 15 patients are being treated at the Panzi Hospital. The aid effort is being coordinated through the provincial governor’s office.
