Democratic Republic of Congo humanitarian crisis: ‘She has no option but to stay and suffer’

‘Extremely difficult days’ in Eastern DRC

It is Friday afternoon in Goma and our team has just returned from an extremely difficult mission in North Kivu. I am the Emergency Programme Manager with Concern in North Kivu and have been based here almost 10 months. The last two weeks have been, perhaps, the most challenging I have faced since I have been here and we expect these demanding circumstances to persist in the coming weeks.
