This is the wife of the man in the tattered shirt in the post about Chronic IDPs. I interviewed them and asked them from what village they came, they said they had no village. We went round and round trying to find out what their old village was called until we understood they had grown up, married and started a family never having a permanent home or village. They live in temporary shelters and flee whenever the Burma Army gets too close. This woman's expression says it all.
