It means that women living in camps don't have to go out looking for firewood in the bush where they are liable to be attacked.

The play Ruined, is at once heartbreaking and captivating. The play, Ruined, is set in the present-day Democratic Republic of the Congo. Subjected too, rape forced prostitution, and brutal sexual mutilation, the young womens bodies have become battlegrounds. The play, Ruined, follows a young woman's nightmarish path to Mama Nadi.

Today it is Coltan from Congo, tomorrow it'll be something else, XYZ from XYZ countries...the list never ends.

For the internally displaced in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, safety is a rare commodity. The UN refugee agency manages 13 camps set up to help the displaced regain some sense of security. In eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, more than 100,000 internally displaced Congolese have sought safety in 13 camps run by the UN refugee agency. While the camps provide greater safety, an atmosphere of lawlessness pervades the region. Anyone who ventures outside the camps is a potential victim. In a conflict where rape has become a weapon, women are especially vulnerable.
