Description : During times of tribal war, many communities are forced to flee their villages and live in hiding for weeks or months at a time. “When we are hiding, we have no idea what we are going to eat the next day, week or month,” he said. Lack of food forces the women to travel into dangerous territory to find sustenance, leaving them vulnerable to attack.
