Refugee Life

September 3, 2012

Around the world, we see the sincere efforts of many others who are trying to bring relief to refugees who suffer as you (Louise) did for me. To my side, I admire the strength of character that I observe in some fellow refugees who can still smile and laugh in spite of unimaginable suffering.

Food distribution At the end of each month, we receive 10 kg. of meal flour, 5 kg. of soya, 5 grams of salt, 2 kg. of beans, a piece of soap, 750 ml of cooking oil.  We are living in bad conditions which people in developed lands would not even let their pets live in!  We live day by day, as part of a chaotic environment where one could die tomorrow.  I feel worn down by the daily struggle of making ends meet.

WAR:   During the war and pillage, a prevalent motto among Congolese youth was: “you can steal our possessions, but you can never steal what is in our brains.
