The human cost of the war in Eastern Congo is horrifying. In the height of the violence many women suffered systematic rape at the hands of the armed groups and thousands of children were orphaned and left vulnerable.
Local peacebuilder Flory Kazingufu believes that as much of the violence in South Kivu now happens at the community level, any remedy for conflict must come from within these communities. Therefore Flory set up The Chirezi Foundation to ‘build peace and change lives’ by finding alternatives for these victims of war, the women and children and their communities.
