This young man is not married and does not have children. He lives in the Fuzuli region together with his mother. Elgun's mother has a cardiovascular disease. Elgun tries to work hard and earn money so that he could help pay for his mother's medical treatment. He currently needs 1600 AZN to repair his taxi because he cannot work until his taxi is fixed and cannot keep up with paying for his mother's treatment. Elgun has been working as a taxi driver for three years. He is an IDP from the city of Fuzuli.
An internally displaced person (IDP) is a person who have been forced or obliged to flee his home, in particular as a result of an armed conflict, violence, violations of human rights or natural or human-made disasters, and who, unlike a refugee, has not crossed an internationally recognized State border and remains on the territory of his own country.
