Description : Vasilii Zigibarts is one of the 250,000 Georgians who fled Abkhazia during the conflict 16 years ago. Since then, he has lived in this bare room in a collective centre for the displaced in Zugdidi, Western Georgia. The region bordering Abkhazia continues to struggle to absorb the large population of displaced persons, most of whom live in abject poverty.
