Children staying in relief camps (officially closed at the time of the interview), in temporary shelters until their homes are rebuilt (or is safe to return) or relocated in other regions were interviewed. The children were allowed to speak of the events that they had witnessed, their perceptions of what they had witnessed and who the perpetrators were. The children were encouraged to express themselves through drawings, especially of ‘good things’ and ‘bad things’ in their lives.
