Situation in Goma

December 4th, 2012

There is generally good news, at least for the short term on the situation in DRC. M23 is officially moving out of Goma now.

However, they are only pulling back  by between 20-40 kilometers and it looks like they will continue to control the airport. Goma lost power and water for over a week, Bakavu and the regions around our projects were not attacked or occupied. Yet many NGO’s have at least temporarily suspended activities. There have been some cross border clashes between Rwanda and DRC.

Unfortunately, virtually everyone agrees, it looks like we are now moving into a much less stable period. We will carry on as best we are able. In the meantime, we will go on with the school and other projects.
