Description : The hoes that Rebecca is holding were made locally at a blacksmith's forge in Paoua, where the ICRC team is based. They can be used for weeding crops and digging out roots and stones. When families fled during attacks on their villages they set up makeshift shelters in the forest close to their fields, so that they could go on cultivating their land.
