Life is hard for Congolese

Consider recent news ... As forces loyal to a local general were advancing toward Goma, capital of North Kivu province they fired on UN peacekeepers. The peacekeepers battled back and secured the area. Meanwhile, a volcano has erupted in the Eastern DR Congo. After the recent election, Zambia and DR Congo signed an agreement about repatriating over 50,000 refugees, who had fled from violence in DR Congo. Mass graves have been found in the northeastern DR Congo. Every year, more than one million African newborns die within their first month of life, half with the first 24 hours. Life for the Congolese people is neither secure nor peaceful. The people and the new democratically elected government is in need of prayers.
