Wanted to say Congratulations to one of the unsung heroes of the global refugee crisis: 2018 @refugees #NansenAward winner, Dr Evan Atar Adaha.
Dr Evan Atar Adaha has spent 20 years providing lifesaving medical services to people forced to flee conflict in Africa.
In Bunj, South Sudan, he runs the only functional hospital, serving around 200,000 people, including 144,000 refugees.
Dr. Atar and his team deliver vital care in extremely challenging conditions: the hospital has no general anaesthesia, x-ray machines, operational theatre lighting, or blood bank. Yet their they carry out almost 60 operations per week. Amazing.
His work shows how one person can make a huge difference. "We don't give up, we still have hope”
