(ACI Africa) War victims in North Kivu, DR Congo, benefit from Salesians’ “improved” facilities

KINSHASA, Democratic Republic of the Congo

(Excerpt) At least 1,800 victims of violent conflicts in North Kivu Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have benefited from the medical care provided by the U.S.-based development arm of the Religious Institute of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), Salesian Missions.

The war between the Armed Forces of DRC (FARDC) and the M23 rebels, the latter a largely Congolese Tutsi militia, that has raged for years intensified in November 2021 when the rebels increased attacks targeting armed forces in the Eastern DRC that covers North Kivu Province.

With the support of International Volunteering for Development (VIS), the Salesian officials say that they have been able to reach a large portion of the 28,000 IDPs who arrived at the center seeking help.
