In October 2015, I accompanied the humanitarian organisation Medair to eastern Congo, a region in crisis for more than two decades. Medair has been bringing relief to people suffering in some of the most remote places in DR Congo since 1997.
DR Congo is often a forgotten crisis. It doesn’t show up much in the news, but millions of people continue to be forced from their homes cut off from health care and other essentials because of ongoing waves of violence.
Medair is going far off the beaten path to make sure vital health services are up and running in remote villages. You can learn more about what they are doing here: medair.org/extramile
The interviews in this film went through several translations. As a result, there might be some mistakes in the translation, but the main content was not altered.
