Reality in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC):
Political unrest. Mass slaughter. Malnourishment. Sexual abuse. Cholera.
According to the United Nations, 13 million people are affected by the internal unrest in the Democratic Republic of Congo. More than 4.6 million children are acutely malnourished. Approximately 4 million people have been displaced. The worst cholera outbreak in 15 years is spreading through the country - and the UN refugee camps in Uganda. Women and children are easy targets for sexual abuse and slaughter.
Reality in the Congo is a four-year-old girl left with a scar from a machete after her mother, carrying her while preparing dinner, was brutally murdered. It’s two mass graves covering the center of Maze, a city in eastern DR Congo, after more than 40 people were killed.
This is the suffering and pain our brethren in eastern Congo are facing. Because of violence they have been forced to leave their farms becoming refugees in Uganda or internally displaced persons (IDPs) elsewhere in the DRC.
ARDF is committed to meeting this need through our church partners. The Anglican Church of Uganda is working to keep refugees and orphans children out of the camps by caring for the vulnerable themselves. The Diocese of Bukavu (DRC) is providing IDPs with food and crucial supplies. Anglican leaders across the African continent are advocating with their political leaders for peace.
