A staggering 1.5 million Eritreans - almost half of the total population of the country - have been displaced from their homes by Ethiopia's invasion. Relief workers in Eritrea have estimated that about 25 percent of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) are women, and 65-70 percent children. Figures of those displaced and fleeing their homes are changing daily as more refugees are being found in their hide-outs in nearby hills and valleys.
