Living on hope in Central African Republic

This is now home for about 100,000 people. It's located near an airport in Central African Republic. Those who feared for their lives came here. They are still living with next to nothing. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LINDIS HURUM, FIELD COORDINATOR AT THE M'POKO CAMP, SAYING: "The people in this camp are living in the worst condition, I'd say. And they have been so for more than five weeks now. They are living on the ground, they don't have enough water, there are no toilets. They just started distributing food and NFIs (non-food items) last week, so after four weeks…so it is really, really tough for this population. And now it's about 100,000 people living here in a very small area close to the airport." Nearly a million people, or a quarter of the population, have been displaced by violence between Christians and Muslims that's tearing the country apart. And there is cold comfort in the camp. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LINDIS HURUM, FIELD COORDINA
