Chad: Still in need of safety: The internally displaced in eastern Chad

, Index number: AFR 20/012/2010

More than four years after internal conflict, inter-ethnic violence and attacks by bandits forced hundreds of thousands to flee their homes in eastern Chad, around 170,000 people, most of them women and children, are still internally displaced and unable to return home in safety and dignity. Insecurity in their villages and the proliferation of small arms are preventing them from returning home. The lack of basic services such as access to drinking water, health and education in their villages of origin is another obstacle.
