Description : Thousands of people have fled into the bush to escape conflict in the region and are living in precarious conditions without adequate shelter and food. Village water pumps provide clean water, but for the displaced even this essential commodity is often not available. Having lost their possessions when they fled their homes, families are lacking even the most basic items needed for survival.
