The fighting that began last week in the town of Kitchanga in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)'s North Kivu Province, is still ongoing. Thousands of the town's inhabitants—mostly women, children, and the elderly—have fled in fear, taking only their few belongings and their cattle. People who are unable to flee are seeking refuge in makeshift camps. MONUSCO
