As refugees fleeing the fighting deep in Africa's Democratic Republic of Congo continue to gush across the border into southwest Uganda, MAP International is rushing medicines and emergency supplies to the area.
Thus far more than 15,000 men, women and children have crossed into Uganda since August, many walking for more than two days in order to try to reach safety. Recently, more than 1,300 Congolese refugees crossed the border in a single day. Some had lost every single member of their family during attacks.
"The situation is very desperate," said Dr.
The immediate loss of lives and injuries from the volcanic eruption in January was mercifully small, and MAP did not organize an immediate relief response. MAP has committed, however, to the longer process of resupplying Goma's health institutions through long-standing partners like Baptist World Aid, DOCS, and others that run hospitals and clinics in the town.
The main road into what is left of Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo, now dead ends at a wall of lava six feet high and as wide as five football fields. Entering or leaving the city requires scrambling up the wall and trekking across 500 yards of lava rock and then scrambling down the other side.
Brunswick, GA, August 2...Georgia-based global relief agency, MAP International and NBA All-Star, Dikembe Mutombo, center for the Atlanta Hawks, have joined to send lifesaving medicines to two facilities in Kinshasa, Mutombo's hometown, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Since the ceasefire in January, an estimated 810,000 displaced persons, including tens of thousands of refugees, continue to return to their homes.
