An Internally Displaced Woman (IDP), in Tanzania, Nywandwi Velelia, has just delivered three babies at the Ndutu Refugee camp, at the camp’s MSF-run maternity ward.
Nyandwi and her new baby boys are all healthy: the delivery was straightforward and the family was discharged quickly from hospital.
However, many challenges lie ahead for the triplets as their new home is a tent that leaks when it rains and their cradle will be a simple mat on the floor. They will share this accommodation with their mother, father and three other siblings.

Speaking on her fears for the baby, Nywandwi said: "I have no clothes for my newborns and I`m worried that they will get sick.”
Nyandwi is one of 89,000 people now living in Nduta camp, where overcrowded and unsanitary living conditions are contributing to a spike in diseases such as malaria.
It is well!
