Save a Mom's Life in the Congo

May 7, 2012

Update from the Democratic Republic of Congo

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, 5 people have been killed in clashes between army forces and supporters of General Bosco Ntaganda (wanted by the International Criminal Court). More than 4,500 refugees have crossed the border into Rwanda with more waiting at the border.  There is an urgent need for medicine, amid fears of looting of health facilities and widespread displacement. 

International Medical Corps is monitoring the situation and preparing to deploy if needed. 

Give today and your support can help us respond to crises like this in the Congo, while continuing long-term recovery efforts.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.
