Kamala, North Katanga, Democratic Republic of the Congo
Bavuye, who is more than 70 years old, is one of the displaced people living at the very end of Kamala village. She fled her village of Halay in June and arrived in Kamala to seek refuge in July. Her husband died a few days later. When Kamala was attacked in August, she was forced to flee again, alone, to Manono. As relative peace returned she came back to Kamala counting on the hospitality of the host communities. But they are also suffering and struggling after the destruction of their houses and Bavuye is now left by herself. She can barely see but has to take care of everything alone. She lives in a makeshift shelter with only a roof made out of leaves to protect her from the rain.
