Democratic Republic of Congo

Coping with Decades of Instability

The unspeakable brutality of armed groups in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo has left countless civilians with severe disabling injuries. HI works in North Kivu province, providing support to vulnerable people caught in the region’s conflicts and to victims of explosive remnants of war and armed violence.

By January 2018, the Democratic Republic of the Congo hosted more than 540,000 refugees, and 4.5 million people were displaced inside the country.
