“An internally displaced person can be defined as someone who is forced to leave their home but still takes refuge within their country’s borders. This article highlights a UN humanitarian team’s experience in a town where refugees numbering in the hundreds of thousands are in desperation for basic human needs.” -Enrico Frianeza

This was the latest fighting in an internal CAR [Central African Republic] conflict that has displaced nearly 400,000 people this year, according to United Nations figures.
