Description : In order to prevent the spread of the disease, which has killed at least 7 people in the camps in the last couple of months, the ICRC began an awareness project, hanging up banners and creating hand-washing stations, reminding people to wash their hands when entering and leaving the camp. The ICRC also installed water pumps in the Muna camp to help improve conditions.
