Washington Post: “A Conflict’s Deadly Ripple Effects”

Posted by Laura Heaton on August 3, 2009

Washington Post:

Don’t miss this stirring piece in yesterday’s Washington Post by Stephanie McCrummen, who is reporting from eastern Congo in advance of Secretary Clinton’s visit next week. Piecing together the story of one man’s death in eastern Congo, McCrummen illustrates the deadly combination of factors – displacement, harsh jungle conditions, and lack of access to care – that stem from the fighting that has plagued the region for over a decade.

The report certainly serves as a compelling reminder why we must focus our efforts on working to resolve the world’s deadliest war in Congo. Enough’s RAISE Hope for Congo campaign coordinator Candice Knezevic is currently traveling in the region and will be blogging about the work of Enough’s local partners and the stories of the survivors she meets. Check back here for Candice’s updates from the field and visit the RAISE Hope website to join the movement.
