Meggi, 6, an internally displace person (IDP) from Eredvi, Georgia, paints her nails in her family's one room at the Isani Shelter in Tbilisi. The family took shelter at the abandoned Isani Military Hospital in August 2008, when they escaped from the fighting in their village during the conflict over South Ossetia. Eredvi is no longer under Georgian control.
Meggi and her family have lived at the shelter since fleeing the fighting, waiting on the government to issue them the $10,000 housing allowance they were promised. On Aug. 5, Amnesty International issued a report on IDPs in Georgia, calling on the government to do more to provide suitable housing, employment and security for all the IDPs displaced during the country's many conflicts during the past two decades.
