Stories from on the ground:
The Afar region, Where the Dubti General Hospital is located, is one of the most impoverished and affected regions.
"Sick people, people with burns and gunshot wounds from the conflict do not stop arriving at the Dubti Hospital and the hospital is facing great difficulties in being able to provide proper care."
Dr. Muhammed, CEO of Dupti General Hospital
"People are running in absolute fear in all directions," said an aid worker in Afar, who asked not to be identified.
"The Afar Pastoralist Development Association, a local aid group, supplied pictures of wounded children in Dubti hospital, including a badly burned boy, whose father told aid workers his two sons aged 9 and 11 had been injured when artillery fire hit their home in the town of Abala on Jan. 15."
