Relief to Refugees

GCI’s project sites in Africa are located close to the intersection of the borders of three countries: Rwanda, Congo and Burundi. The area sees many refugees, victims of the ‘mineral wars,’ who need assistance with food, medical care and shelter.

Glory Church in Bugarama, Rwanda is walking distance from the borders with Burundi to the east and DR Congo to the southwest. Currently there are tensions in both neighboring regions. The nearest town, Kamoniola, in DR Congo, is very unsafe. Families are fleeing for safety to Rwanda and Bugarama is the first stop to safety.
