MYITKYINA, MYANMAR - MARCH 13th, 2016: Phaw La Htu, 61, a resident of Shwezet IDP village. She, her family of 14, and nearly 500 others were forced to relocate here in 2011 because of escalated fighting in her former village between the Kachin Independence Army, KIA, and the Burmese government, which has been in various states of conflict since 1994. She says she would love to return home, but will only do so when everyone does, as she’s scared to be there alone.
