Consequences of ethnic conflicts  war are so many :

For IDPS their very first is to restore peace in their regions occupied by rebels such as : RAIYA MUTOMBOKI, NYATURA, M23 , MAI MAI … They are victims mosquitoes, malaria, cholera and diseases. They do not use  potable water and  drink  kivu lake water which is full of microbes. Children do not go to school. The economy of the has declined. Virunga fauna has destroyed by rebels.

Most of IDPS live only with 0.5 $ US.  They declared , there are 6 months, they  don’t assisted by Non Government Organization.  People are suffering a  great deal and starvation.

We recommend to DRC government to take its responsibility  and  think about displaced people by building for them school, houses, hospital… also to help them with materials which will help them to  look for money.

DRC government must consolidate  and restore peace in North – Kivu province.

Also negative armed group must be eradicated .  Bridding and farming is the most important  thing  for the a human being , we recommend to  government to give a space  to IDPS where they can farm and bride  and also give them hoes, panga.  A certain saying goes : “Teach me how to fish instead of giving me a fish”
