Displacement, Dislocation and Disintegration - PART2

6 Sep 2017

"The insurgents came to our village on a Monday, at around 8am. We left only with our lives. They chased us to the river and we hid for three days in the long grass until we knew they had gone. My second born was just eight days old. To get him across the river we tied old petrol cans together to make a raft. Many from our village couldn’t swim and they died. We got here to Diffa and we have been here ever since. Life is not easy here but we are safe. We have been welcomed and given some space but we are sixteen people in my family and there is not enough to go around." – Amina*, with her oldest son
