In May 2014, an armed group from Liberia attacked the village of Fétai, western Côte d'Ivoire. Thirteen people died and several were injured. Houses were destroyed and damage was extensive. Over 3,000 people fled to the small town of Grabo nearby, where the authorities and the humanitarian community set up a site to provide temporary accommodation for 1,000 of them. Working in conjunction with the Red Cross Society of Côte d'Ivoire, the ICRC put up tents, built showers and latrines and organized a water supply.
