As a result of the attacks, OCHA reports that at least 80% of homes in the area have been destroyed or severely damaged, with 70% of the displaced suffering as victims of violence.
Since March 31, IOM has conducted telephone interviews with 244 of the 512 households living in Tabarre Issa. According to the preliminary results of the survey, 84% had sought refuge with relatives, 15% were without a shelter and only 1% had remained in Tabarre Issa. While some households moved to the departments of Centre, Grand’Anse, South and South-East, the majority (96.5%) moved to the neighbourhoods of Vallée de Bourdon, Djobel, Tabarre, Torcel and Pernier.
The attacks were very violent : no less than 80% of the homes were destroyed or heavily damaged. In total, 166 of the 244 interviewed heads of household reported that their homes were completely destroyed.
The survey also indicates that 15% of the heads of household were separated from their families and that approximately 70% were victims of violence, mainly verbal and psychosocial, but also, to a lesser extent, physical. One case of sexual violence was reported.
There are unconfirmed reports that two spontaneous sites are being established in the Vallée de Bourdon. One of the priorities will be to confirm this situation and assess the number of individuals and immediate needs in these sites.
