• Searching for Safety in Democratic Republic of Congo

    WFP provides food for survivors of sexual violence who are recovering in Panzi Hospital in Bukavu, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Rape is widespread in DRC, particularly in the war-torn east of the country. WFP is also working to reduce the risk of sexual violence against women with a project for the manufacture of fuel briquettes in Goma. 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 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.

Amid rising violence and displacement in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), 7.7 million people face acute hunger - a 30 percent increase over the last year ( 2016), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) warned today in a new report. According to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) analysis released today, between June 2016 and June 2017, the number of people in “emergency” and “crisis” levels of food insecurity (IPC Phase 4 and 3) – which precede “famine” levels on the IPC scale – and requiring urgent humanitarian food assistance rose by 1.8 million, from 5.9 million to 7.7 million. This means that more than one in ten people living in rural areas suffer from acute hunger. Hunger is on the rise due to escalating and prolonged conflict and displacement in central and eastern DRC, mainly in the Kasaï and Tanganyika regions, where there has been widespread violence. Some 1.4 million people have been forced to flee their homes over the past year. FAO and WFP call for an urgent increase in the provision of lifesaving food and specialized nutrition assistance to combat malnutrition as well as seeds and tools so that farmers can plant again and regain their livelihoods. In conflict-hit areas of Kasaï and Tanganyika regions, FAO is providing vegetable seeds and hand tools to rapidly boost food production and increase the availability of nutritious foods among displaced and hosting communities. Ultimately, livelihoods are people’s best defense against hunger and catastrophe. In 2017, FAO is seeking to assist 2.1 million people in DRC to tackle hunger, restore food production and build more resilient livelihoods. WFP continues to support DRC’s most vulnerable people. It has deployed staff in two of Kasaï’s hardest hit provinces, Tshikapa and Kasaï Central, where it will launch food distributions in the coming days. Elsewhere in the country, WFP is providing logistics capacity including air and road transport, fuel and storage to the wider humanitarian community. In 2018, funding permitting, FAO aims to support around 3 million people to tackle hunger, restore food production and build more resilient livelihoods.

Natural Sound Brazzaville's mayor and mediator, Bernard Kolelas, says the fighting factions in the Republic of Congo agreed to extend a 72 hour truce for a further seven days. The ceasefire was originally due to finish at midnight on Friday and French troops continued their withdrawal from the capital as the initial deadline approached. Among those leaving Brazzaville on Friday were 140 refugees from Mauritius and Mali, who had been camping around the airport for around five weeks. French troops have been busy at Brazzaville's Maya Maya airport as Friday's scheduled end to the 72 hour ceasefire drew closer. French soldiers have been evacuating foreign nationals since fighting crossed the River Congo from the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo, formerly Zaire. Fighting broke out on June 5 between forces loyal to the Republic of Congo's President Pascal Lissouba and those of his predecessor, former military leader Denis Sassou Nguesso. Having evacuated foreign nationals wishing to leave the country, French troops turned their attention to equipment on Friday, packing A-P-Cs and other military hardware. Around 450 French troops are still left in the Republic of Congo - they were expected to be withdrawn on Sunday before Friday's announcement of the extension to the ceasefire. Flying to safety on Friday were 140 refugees from Mauritius and Mali who boarded an Air Daddia plane, protected by French troops. The situation in Brazzaville has remained tense as Congolese government soldiers and Denis Sassou Nguesso's Cobra fighters prepared to resume fighting at the end of the ceasefire.

English/Nat Around one hundred Rwandan refugees from Tingi-Tingi camp in eastern Zaire have begun arriving in the Congolese capital Brazzaville after fleeing from the rebel advance on Kisangani. The refugees spoke of their month-long ordeal trekking across the forests of Zaire and canoeing down rivers to reach safety. Around one hundred Rwandan refugees have started to filter into Brazzaville, the Congolese capital. Tired and malnourished they walked through forests fleeing Laurent Kabila's rebels. Since October, Kabila's forces have seized half of the Central African country. The Rwandan refugees have fled each rebel advance, convinced the rebels are out to exterminate them. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I left Tingi-Tingi because the robbers were near the camp and they just began to shoot on the people who were in that camp. So I tried to escape from the tragedy. But many people who were there died, many people are dying there." SUPER CAPTION: Rwandan refugee Human rights organisations have accused the rebels of killing refugees and terrorising their camps. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Many of those refugees are just tired now and they have nothing to eat for a lot of days. And when they have to go on foot across the forest, there is nothing to eat, there isn't any water to drink. It is very difficult to survive. Many people, the old, old men and the children are dying there in the forest." SUPER CAPTION: Rwandan refugee Rebel leader, Laurent Kabila has given the United Nations two months to repatriate the estimated 100-thousand Rwandan refugees in Zaire. The U-N plans to airlift 80-thousand Rwandan refugees, but says it is impossible to meet the two-month deadline.

Modern electronics use a number of rare earth minerals in their batteries and circuitry. The Democratic Republic of Congo is where much of these minerals are mined, often dug by hand by people endangering their health and safety for, low wages. In the face of criticism, the high-tech industry has launched an initiative to improve the conditions under which such minerals are mined. VOA senior analyst Jeffrey Young has details.
