Democratic Republic of the Congo: The villagers of Ziralo talk about the impact of the conflict

19 October 2016

Violence is the constant backdrop to life in Ziralo, a group of seven villages in the Congolese province of South Kivu.

The people of Tushunguti, like those of neighbouring villages, must regularly flee rape, looting and fire, trekking from village to village in search of safety. Almost 10,000 families live in this inaccessible region.
