It’s hardly in the news, but the on-going violence in DR Congo is having a devastating effect. UNICEF reports that 1.3 million people have been displaced by the violence in Tanganyika and South Kivu alone. 800,000 of these people are children.
Displacement from their homes has left the children vulnerable to sickness and malnutrition, not to mentionÂ sexual abuse and recruitment into militias.
Please join us in praying for all the children caught up in DRC’s violence. Pray that the unrest will quickly end and that this generation of children will be able to recover from the traumas they have experienced. Please also pray for our partners in Kinshasa and Goma, where the situation is not as extreme but still very tense.
