This girl and her family are hiding in the bush from military and rebels in northern Central African Republic. Without access to basic amenities, basins are left out to collect rain water.
They escaped from an attack by government forces on Boutouli village in early February 2006. Some 200,000 people have been displaced. They live in fear of hearing a vehicle.
Rebel attacks on towns in the north-west are usually followed by brutal retaliations on civilians in villages as the government accuses them of supporting the rebels.
These APRD rebels, who carry old rifles, are pictured near Zara village. Most villages in the region have been abandoned or burnt out.
Some of the youth enrolled with the group are as young as 12 years old. The APRD seem to have no coherent political agenda, but say they want peace for CAR's citizens.
These children attend a bush school set up in June. They escaped attacks on their village of Benankouna earlier this year. More remote areas are beyond the help of aid workers.
