Some of the world's humanitarian crisis are well known - Gaza and Ukraine for example - but many more are less likely to make international news: Chad and Sudan.

One of the organisations operating wherever there is conflict is Médecins Sans Frontières or Doctors Without Borders.

It's working in a world emerging from the covid pandemic, with inflation rampant and people increasingly disconnecting from bad news.

MSF's International President, Dr Christos Christou is a trauma surgeon with extensive experience working in war zones.
