Description : An ICRC employee relates: "The charred remains of a house, which was burned to the ground in December along with at least 300 other houses during the fight in Kikita II. The family father calmly pointed out where the different rooms of the house used to be. You could see the remains of possessions in the wreckage: a melted typewriter here, charred crockery there. But I was struck by how composed he was. He told us his faith kept him strong."
