DRC: Armed Conflict Displaces Thousands in North Kivu

Escalating conflict in eastern Congo has driven health care workers from their posts and cut essential medical services in and around the town of Pinga, North Kivu Province. “We’re very concerned about all those who have fled Pinga. It’s a strong indication of how fear has escalated and how people believe the situation will go from bad to worse. It also shows the increasing challenge to deliver medical aid to those in need,” says Jan-Peter Stellema, MSF’s operations manager, in Goma. MSF remains committed to its projects throughout North Kivu.
