Kibumba camp

Kibumba is a displaced persons camp about forty minutes north of Goma, close to the border with Rwanda. It is built upon the ruins of the camps for Rwandan refugees. The population comes from Rugare about 10km away and as far as Tongo about 40km away. It is managed by the displaced themselves and the UN and NGOs provides services in the camp in agreement with the Committee of the Displaced. UNICEF with NGO partners is running an area for children to play and where we can listen out for any problems children might be having, we are supporting emergency schooling, water points, latrines and psychosocial as well as medical support for rape survivors.
