When Revaz took his family and left home, he never imagined it would be forever.

A graduate of culinary school and then chef at a prestigious hotel in Sokhumi, Georgia, Revaz had always provided well for his family. But when conflict overtook their home region, they fled to Khobi, expecting to return quickly. That was over 25 years ago.

Now they live in a settlement of four displaced Georgian families. Revaz patched together a living as a handyman. Eventually, he acquired about 3,000 m² of land near the settlement, so he and his sons began farming. The income was meager, though; Revaz, now in his 60s, hoped to do better.

Revaz’s situation is common in Georgia, where IOCC is working with internally displaced people and locals to help them improve their lives.
