Goma Emergency Appeal – Quaker Congo Partnership

Quakers, and the whole population in Goma, in the east of Democratic Republic of Congo are suffering from food shortages. M23 rebels supported by Rwanda have blocked the roads to Goma and attacked people in villages. People have fled the villages and left their fields which provided food to the city. However, Goma is not completely cut off – it can be reached by boat on Lake Kivu and by air. Quakers in Goma have appealed for money for emergency relief. This will go through CEEACO the Quaker church in the DRC. Quaker Congo Partnership (QCP) UK have agreed to forward donations to CEEACO if Friends would like to donate to help Friends and others in Goma.
