This 38-year-old mother of five still has hope. “If we have peace, we can return and we will have things to sell, food—a normal life.” She was in the market and heard gunshots coming towards her. She took her children and fled from her village in North Kivu. They spent the night in the forest and then tried to find shelter in another village, but were told it was not safe. Eventually they reached the Minova displacement camp where MSF has constructed latrines and a water pump and is providing health care at the nearby health center.
