Conflict in Eastern Congo

Check out this clip about Eastern Congo at http://blog.theirc.org/2008/12/05/one-family-caught-up-in-congos-crisis-video/

This week the PBS show Worldfocus aired a story that featured the International Rescue Committee’s work assisting families displaced by the crisis in North Kivu, Congo. Reporter Michael J. Kavanagh met Pascal and Vestine, a young teacher and his wife, and their newborn daughter in a refugee camp. Watch their story and read more about the conflict in Kavanagh’s companion piece — and learn what happened when Kavanagh and his crew were detained by Congo’s secret police.

KRM is currently resettling refugees from the Congo. If you would like information about how you can help Congolese people in Lexington, please contact us for more information.
