Life in the Refugee Camp


Excerpt from 10 Million to 1 by Jeffrey Kirk

I lived in a refugee camp for nearly a year. The camp lacked good facilities, food health care, and shelter. I was assigned a place in "barracks" made of bamboo with thatched roofs and walls.

There were many kinds of biting insects, especially mosquitoes, and there were often rats and snakes too. Many of snakes were poisonous so I was often afraid. We had to chase them into the woods near the edge of camp. 

We were given very little to eat and had to buy extra food from the local people who came to the fence of the camp to sell their stuff to us. They sold food, cigarettes, marijuana, and and alcohol. The alcohol caused many problems in the camp.

Living in the refugee camp was horrible. I would like to forget it, but know that I never will.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
    seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog
    when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    It's very trouble-free to find out any topic on net as compared to textbooks, as I found this paragraph at this site.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off
    the screen in Internet explorer. I'm not sure if this is a
    format issue or something to do with browser
    compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Many thanks
