The situation worsens in the DRC
Converted from the French:
I try to get pictures through from the Kibati Camps in kanyaruchina ( Goma); there are already more than 20,000 Families and more arriving all the time.
We had a busy week with the new displaced families; times are very hard and all we could give the children was biscuits and water only. Since Sunday 5 children have died due to famine; some of the malnourished children may pass away today for lack of medecine and food.
The IDPs (Internally Displaced Persons) have many broblems: Lack of food, lack of medecins, and lack of basic essentials for childrens and women. In the region they are more than 600,000 refugees and they have no assistance.
I have not been able to send the pictures due to the situation here in the camp.
