  • DRC orders army to hunt down M23 leader — Congolese rebels seize border town Bunagana

    refugees flee Bunagana and DR Congo

    This video was taken from a July 2013 BBC news article. Bunagana is where many of the microcredit ladies are from. For a while during the latest fighting the people were going to Uganda at night and returning to the Bunagana during the day to take care of their crops and animals. Many of the people have returned home permanently now. We visited Bunagana in 2011 and at the time it was peaceful. We saw schools where the desks had been burned for firewood. We saw children in their classroom sitting on volcanic rock because there were not enough desks. This school asked us for help, they wanted more desks and classrooms. It seems impossible to help in this region with fighting coming and going.
