Hundreds of families were recently left homeless after Chadian authorities carried out mass forced evictions in the capital N’Djamena to make room for the construction of a hotel.
At least 62 compounds, home to more than 670 people, as well as the community school in the Sabangali area of the capital, were reduced to rubble.
No compensation of alternative housing has been offered to those who lost their homes, and many are now living under trees.
“We don’t really know what to do with all this. Only God will help,” one evicted woman told Amnesty International.
