PHOTO REPORT – Since the beginning of hostilities, hundreds of children have been displaced by violence. With the support of UNICEF, Dr. Moïse is fighting to help children survive.
Families in flight following the violence
“I had to abandon my farms. I cannot go back to live in Kangu because there is nothing to eat. To survive, I carry things from here to my village; I walk 18 km in 6 hours, for an amount of 500 Congolese francs (0.35 American dollars). Since January, I feed my children with only cassava and sweet potato leaves”.
