Dear Bishop Bahati 

Greetings and love from everyone at the Mothers' Union. We are very sorry to hear of the continued suffering of families in Bukavu diocese and our thoughts and prayers are with you and with everyone who has been affected by this terrible situation.

Before we received this latest email on the situation, the Mothers' Union had already agreed a grant from our Relief Fund of $5,000.00 US Dollars to help the Church and Mothers' Union in Bukavu purchase emergency supplies for those affected. We hope it will help in your efforts to reach out to families in the affected areas.

With very best wishes,

Humanitarian desaster causing displacement of people in  Bunyakiri, ziralo, Bufamandu, Walikale and Masisi areas.  

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, 

Receive our warmest greetings in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. 

We want by this letter to tell about the humanitarian desaster happening in the villages of Bunyakiri, ziralo, Bufamandu, Walikale and Masisi with people estimated to 2010 in Bunyakiri and 1050 in Ziralo. This situation is due to the fightings between Interahamwe (Rwandese refugee militias living in D.R. Congo after the Genocide of 1994 in Rwanda) and the loyal army of D.R.C. 

These groups have caused harms to people.   Displaced people has been exposed to bad condition of hygien and health. They can not get any kind of assistance from neither the government nor the NGOs. The emergency aid of medicines offered by Matutira Health Centre is too insufficient because  of the daily incresing of new cases. We want to infor you that Matutira Health Center is for the Anglican Church of Bukavu Diocese which is at at 225km from Bukavu town and 300km from Goma town.  

When the soldiers of D.R. Congo and Rwanda fighted against Interahamwe, these   Interahamwe came massively and attacked the civilian people. Fearing them, the people took the way of displacement leaving their homes and their properties. 

During the attack, the women have been raped, there are wounded people   some by  guns and others by pangs, hoes, knifes,...  41 women have been raped and other have been killed because they could not agree with the rapist, and  146 have been woonded. All the sick people are in Matutira Health Centre for care. 

Let us inform that the women and the children compose the majority of the vulnerable people. 

For this moment, the number of sckness is increasing with the bad hygienic conditions.  The cholera is confirmed with 78 cases of sickeness and 7 deaths (3 mothers, 2 men and 2 children). Malaria and stomac are frequent too. 

We request and we encourage to people and humanitarian organisations of good will to assist these victims living in sorrows and vulnerability. 

We ensure our large collaboration in the God and may the gracious Lord blesses you. 

Sincerely yours, 

Rt Revd Bahati Bali-Busane Sylvestre 

Bishop of Bukavu Diocese.
