  • EMERGENCY AID: DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO

    Distribution of emergency kits and cash assistance.

    In #NordKivu, territory of #Masisi, HEKS organized a distribution of NFI kits, containing a 20-litre container, 20 and 5-litre buckets, 6 reusable sanitary napkins, 4 bars of soap of 600 grams and 3 panties. An emergency kit coupled with a distribution of 60 USD in cash per family so that they can meet their urgent food needs.

    Among the beneficiaries, Mrs. Furaha (in photo) and other villagers have been staying for a month in a school in #Pinga, because they fled the village of #Birihi because of armed clashes for the control of mining resources.

    For Furaha, the emergency kit will allow her to wash her clothes without having to borrow equipment from her neighbours, and she is particularly satisfied to have received soap because she did not have access to it due to lack of means. She and her community have been displaced for a month, but they had not received any assistance until then. Madame Furaha wants to return to her home village once security is restored.
