Caption : Zamboanga, Joaquin Enriquez Memorial Stadium. Over nine months after the conflict, more than 10,000 people are still living in the Joaquin Enriquez Memorial Stadium – the largest evacuation centre in Zamboanga. Cramped accommodation and inadequate sanitation make people vulnerable to disease. Heat is a challenge during the summer months, especially for young children. The rainy season is no better, with flooding in some parts of the stadium and mud everywhere.

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.
