Stuck in a safe house, gun shots clearly nearby, our storyteller, Rodrigue relays the realities of life in dangerous and fragile contexts. Also, very clear from this update is the caliber of our staff, they are incredible, selfless and completely committed to helping communities survive and recover.
Thankfully, all staff returned safely to our main headquarters.
The recent increase in violence, political tension and social unrest in East DRC has severely affected our work. With the presence of armed groups in Binza, our dedicated staff have not been able to deliver the necessary activities to our projects.
Local community leaders in Binza relay context updates to our team, but the situation remains highly volatile.
As a result, increased numbers of families are being forced to flee their homes to find safety in larger cities like Goma. In order to help them survive we are providing emergency hygiene and food packages.
As Rodrigue says, "This is the situation we live with, every day. But we always adapt!"
