Photo exhibit - Delivering Hope in Eastern Congo

Mon, 2008-03-10 (All day) - Thu, 2008-03-20 (All day)
Chancellor Day Hall : 3644 rue Peel Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 1W9

The violent conflicts that have consumed the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) for nearly a decade have killed an estimated four million people, although some experts say the figure is far higher. Misrule, dictatorship, corruption and conflict have left DRC among the poorest countries in the world, yet it has not received the attention it deserves, either from the media or the public. Eastern Congo is one of the most expensive and complicated regions in the world to which to deliver aid. In DRC, the World Food Programme focuses particularly on internally displaced persons and returnees. Eddie Gerald took these photographs in May 2007, in North Kivu, documenting some of the experiences of displaced Congolese in the eastern regions.
