Caption : Zamboanga. Young Nadjrin suffers from skin lesions all over her body, including her face – a common sight at the Joaquin Enriquez Memorial Sports Complex, where poor sanitation conditions make children vulnerable to disease. Her father explains: "She often has tantrums because of these lesions but we can't do much about it. The cramped living space and lack of proper sanitation facilities aren’t doing much to help her condition."

More than nine months after the end of the fighting between the Moro National Liberation Front and the Philippines government, over 40,000 people are still living in evacuation centres in Zamboanga. Behind these figures lie the lives that have been put on hold – the men and women who have lost their homes and livelihoods, the children and elderly people living under difficult conditions – all of them wondering when life will return to normal.
