It’s a war zone.
There are many such places around the globe.
The United Nations COULD set up sanctuary areas close by and provide food, water and shelter until the local conflict ends.
A few years back, when Russia invaded Afghanistan, that situation created the largest refugee mess in the world. People fled into Pakistan and Iran. Millions of people. Russia planted land mines shaped like toys to explode when children picked them up … caused a terrible awful situation.
I recall hosting a nurse from Medecins Sans Frontieres. [Doctors Without Borders] Showed slides and gave a talk at our Social Concerns Committee.
The major shock to our parishioners was that there were no telephone poles in the camps … she explained that there was no electricity.
It’s a different world.
One of my friends is from Eritrea … which is next to Ethiopia. Similar situation. Terrible local war. He is Christian Eritrean but thought he passed for Ethiopian … his whole family was wiped out but thought he was successfully concealing himself. One day his boss called him … he had gone to engineering school locally … and handed him a Fulbright Scholarship and said “TAKE IT.” My friend clearly was next to be killed but his boss was friendly and wanted him out of there. So my friend was able to flee to the U.S.
He is the sole survivor of his family.
That conflict attracted almost no attention … so the genocide went on and on. With no notice or protest from the outside. Russia supported the other side.
