A REPORT ON THE FIVE MONTH HUMANITARIAN AID TO IDPs IN MILE 5 NKWEN BY RUGBWA FUNDED BY KOLA NUT TREE SERVICES

The persistent crisis which has been hitting the English speaking part of the country for the past four years has let to so many lives lost houses burnt and other facilities destroyed. As a result of all these damage, a lot of families have migrated from their original locality /homes to other regions of the country and some to major towns where there is reduced insecurity. In the locality of mile 5 Nkwen we found a family hosting 15 IDPs excluding their family members(8) giving an overall total of 23 persons. Amongst these IDPs we have a visually impaired woman, an old woman living in the house.

With the increase in number of persons inhabiting that home, the expenditure of and financial burden became heavy as house hold expenses had doubled. Below is a list of IDPs found in that home.
