People displaced by fighting in Moebye Township and seeking refuge in the western part of Demoso Township are in dire need of shelter and food, according to displaced persons.

“When we left, the jet fighters had stopped coming, but we could still hear the sound of heavy weapons. We heard ‘thud, thud’ sound. When the planes stopped coming, we decided to leave” said a displaced women.

The displaced people who arrived in the western part of Demoso Township are currently taking refuge with relatives, and some are living in huts in the fields.

There are currently about 30 displaced people from Moebye. They fled with only the clothes on their backs and are in need of food and shelter.
