He noted that in places like Adjuman, website like this http://demo.des.net.id/hotel/wp-includes/author-template.php patients have been sharing hospital beds and straining to share the few available services.

“With now the increased refugees in the area, we fear that these services will no longer be available for the local people,” he said.
