Inter-community violence erupted over fishing rights between the villages of Enyele and Monzaya in Equateur Province, western Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 2009. Clashes between national armed forces and armed groups forced over 165,000 people to flee their homes. Jonathan Torgovnik, a well-known Getty photographer, recently travelled to the two areas along with the ICRC, capturing the span of humanitarian problems faced by the population, their struggle to overcome them and the activities carried out by the ICRC, in cooperation with two national Red Cross societies on both sides of the border.
