Families who had no choice but to flee their homes and leave their possessions behind in response to violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have received support to ensure food security and livelihoods recovery.

Kapinga Abeti lives in Kamonya village in the DRC. After a militia group attacked her village, her family was separated and they struggled to find adequate shelter, clean drinking water and eat only once a day—sometimes not at all. Where Kapinga lives, PWS&D is supporting a response through members of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank  distributing packages of maize flour, beans, oil and salt. Credit: Mulanda Juma, MCC/CFGB
