Democratic Republic of the Congo

South Kivu, Democratic Republic of the Congo
“There are an estimated 400,000 refugees and 1.1 million internally displaced people forced from their homes in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) as a result of armed conflict, systematic killings and human rights atrocities over more than a decade. A decrease in violence has allowed hundreds of thousands of displaced individuals to return home, but in several locations the security situation remains extremely volatile. Armed groups and government troops continue to carry out attacks against civilians mainly in the eastern part of the country. Returnees face further violence and many suffer from a lack of adequate resources and infrastructure.”  _ Refugees International
