Description : In addition to about 240,000 mostly Azeri refugees who had lived in Armenia until 1988, Azerbaijan’s displaced population was estimated at around one million in 1994. Many of them were taken in by local families, while others were forced to survive yet another harsh winter in tents, public buildings and other makeshift accommodation.
After a mine-clearing operation had been carried out and the local infrastructure had begun functioning again, some 30,000 displaced people returned to their villages in the Fizuli district of south-eastern Azerbaijan, on the Iranian border. To help them through the winter months the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) provided reinforced plastic sheeting to repair war-damaged buildings and distributed food parcels.
