Field visits

We visited Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Bulengo twice, Lushagala twice, Rusayu once, and also visited refugees in different communities in Goma twice. The main ideas was to collect evidence on the situation of IDPs and refugees in order to engage on advocacy with various stakeholders. We collected the necessary information we needed and actions were taken.

We wrote an open letter authorities in North Kivu calling upon them to demilitarize IDP Camps in Goma, the letter was also amplified by the New Dynamic of the Civil Society, the Civil Society Active Forces, and others actors from various structures of the Civil Society. In response to these advocacy actions, the Military Governor of North stated in the media that IDPs Camps were secured at 90% and that he instructed all armed people to leave the IDP Camps. We are yet to monitor the situation in order to observe the progress.
