Violence Fuels Cycles of Displacement in Ethiopia

Over the past 15 months, Desalegn, his wife, and their five children have lived in a dozen different places. After their own home in western Guji, in Ethiopia's Oromia region, was burned to the ground, they sought shelter with a neighbour. When that neighbour asked them to leave, they went to stay with Desalegn's in-laws, but it was not long before they had to move on again, writes MSF.

"What I earn isn’t enough to sustain the whole family," says Desalegn. "We don’t have enough food to go around."
