Humanitarian situation in Georgia

TV says it's still not clear how many people have been displaced in Georgia and what their needs are: we think there may be as many as 80,000 or more displaced, but we don't know where they are or what their needs are. (Where have you been?) Mostly been in Tbilisi. We've met some displaced people who are mostly bewildered and upset. (Has something like this happened to these people before?) The older generation went through it in the early 1990s and this has been a difficult time for them. (How is this work different than other conflicts you've experienced?) The dynamics are different�this is a more complex set of feelings. In the Balkans, people have inter-married and so these relationships are now a bit more despairing or difficult.
