Chad - Vaccination Campaign

Once more... a little detour. This time to the Sahel Zone for a 6 week measles vaccination campaign. The region has been shaken by conflict for several years now. Hundred thousands of refugees from Sudan are seeking safety in Chad since the end of 2003. But they did not find peace here but an instable region that is more and more drawn into the conflict across the border. Medecins Sans Frontieres will carry out a vaccination campaign trying to protect several ten thousand children against Measles. Measles is one of the biggest preventable child killers world wide!

After that, in the beginning of april 2009, it is back to the road on my bicycle - over the alps and down to Italy, France, Andorra, Spain, Portugal and Morrocco. You could argue that I am a year late (I had originally planned to be in Morrocco last november) but hey, it's been a fantastic year for me! Better late than sorry, isn't it?
