Experience Of Idp Women

Since 2007 & 2008 post election violence we get to know the experience of Internally Displaced women are a camp in Naivasha. Maureen had accompanied certain human rights NGO officials who had gone to do not food stuffs and bedding. The women living in a camp. Water is everything, I mean how can the Government leave its women and children to continue leaving in such filthy camps. How can the same Government allow its women to give birth in camps?A woman told the story of how she gave birth in her tent an how she has been nursing the child in the camp with no water. These women are undergoing such tumor unless you spend sometime with them you can never tell the extent of their pain. From that experience we learnt the importance of basic things like water and safe accommodation.
