Since 1994, the North Kivu province in the Democratic Republic of Congo has suffered under constant instability. Even thought the reasons for that instability may have varied, the local civilian populations have always been the ones who suffered.
Since 2007, with the fighting between CNDP rebels and the Congolese army starting again,800,00 persons were displaced.
They ran away from the atrocities that they endured in their villages and their homes (looting rapes, forced recruitment especially for children).
Being displaced, these people lost their food and seed supplies. They can no longer cultivate their fields, and meet their needs, especially for food.
