Market, Gbiti Camp
Hamadou, 20 years old.
I arrived in the camp 3 months ago. I walked for two weeks from Yaloké. I passed by Baoro, then Carnot, Gaza and finally made it to Gbiti. My family is in Chad. They were staying in Bozum when the conflict started and were sent to Chad in a convoy organized by the Chadian authorities. I left with absolutely nothing. I didn't even have shoes - someone gave these sandals to me on the way. In Carnot and Gaza we were caught in an ambush. Four people were killed, including my 40 year-old brother. His wife and kids are also in Gbiti now. I am registered - UNHCR will decide my future. I'm willing to go back to CAR as soon as the country is stable. We've heard rumors that the UNHCR wants to resettle us definitely in Gbiti but I don't feel safe here: it's too close to the border.
