THEY SURVIVED CONFLICT
Now, they face a new danger
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been in armed conflict for 90 years. More than 10 rebel groups occupy the country and millions of lives have been lost. Louise’s family survived the conflict by hiding in the mountains
Then, disease came for them.
They survived the violence. But they can’t survive without clean water.
Watch Louise’s incredible story of loss, strength and survival:
Louise now lives in a camp in Rubaya with her remaining children. Here, diseases like cholera are the biggest threat. But ever since Oxfam supporters helped build a water tank nearby, Louise knows she can keep her family safe.
Oxfam is supplying close to 38,000 people with water and sanitation services in the DRC. These essential services can be the difference between life and death.
