Photojournal: Tragedy in DR Congo


Uwimana's story

Uwimana Ruhuwreru has been displaced seven times in the last 15 months in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo as a result of continued fighting between rebels loyal to renegade General Laurent Nkunda and government soldiers.

Over 1.6m people remain displaced throughout the region and the humanitarian situation deteriorates daily as fighting continues.
