Family Survival Packs gift in action

Kieran McConville, Democratic Republic of Congo, 2017

Muragije and Munyabarenzi and their six children fled their village in the Democratic Republic of Congo when fighting broke out, and they're now living in a hillside camp, a seven hour walk from their home. When they arrived at the camp they were given a survival pack from Concern, which included jerry cans, cooking pots and crockery, blankets, clothing and female hygiene products. These packs have been invaluable to the family, and have helped them retain their dignity in the most challenging situation. "I am so happy - this is very important for us," said Munyabarenzi.

This gift goes towards our Emergency programme.
