Description : The 1990s conflict between Georgia and its breakaway republic of Abkhazia forced 250,000 people to flee the fighting. Still today, many are unable to return home. Even those residents left behind are experiencing serious hardship as the economy of western Georgia is currently in a state of slump. With no jobs, little or no income and no future, it's the very old, the very sick and those without families to help who are suffering most. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is assisting thousand of people who have nowhere else to turn, providing basic food supplies and helping the housebound in their homes. Interviews with people in the towns of Zugdidi and Kutaisi reveal the depth of their suffering and the urgent need for both help and hope.
