Description : Charlotte, 48 years old, displaced since November 2007 testifies . " The main problem here in the displaced camp is that I have five children, for five children we have one meal a day. This baby that I am carrying today is an orphan. The mother died and I was given the baby to take care of. We have awareness programme in the camp and there is a Red Cross "maison d'├ęcoute". If I meet a rape victim, I would help by taking the victim to the Red Cross office. They will guide the person on how to get medical treatment, how to continue the life and how to overcome the difficulties.
