Shelter does not make a home

Looking at these structures in the IDP camps and the life there-in, i was left with just one lamentation: Shelter does not make a home. There is no way these grass thatched structures can be a home to the multitudes who take refuge in them. The small white structures in the foreground are some of the emergency latrines built by the NGOs that have tried to supplement government's efforts. Hygiene and sanitation remain as huge a challenge to the people in this camp (Omiya Anyima) as eating an elephant is to a lion.
