People In Eastern Congo Forced To Fund The War That Destroys Their Lives, Says Oxfam

Notes to editors:

  • This is Oxfam's sixth protection assessment since 2007. Between 4 and 20 June, Oxfam and 41 partner organizations conducted focus groups and interviews with 1,328 people in 32 conflict-affected communities across the three eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo: Provence Orientale, North Kivu and South Kivu. People were asked to give their views on the security situation and their protection in a context of ongoing violence, exploitation, and the widespread presence of multiple armed groups.
  • Oxfam's 2012 protection assessment looked at the situation beyond those areas worst affected by insecurity, to include villages that did not suffer from regular armed attacks. This enabled comparison between areas where the predominant armed actors (who have become de facto authorities) were either an armed group, the Congolese Army (FARDC), or other state services, including the police and intelligence services. The assessment also covered communities in areas where control regularly changes between the FARDC and armed groups.
