DR Congo Child Trauma
In the Ituri region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (near Goma), Covenant World Relief is participating in a long-term project to address the needs of children who have suffered incredible trauma. Many children in this region have lost parents and other family members and have personally witnessed brutal violence.
Through this project, local child trauma specialists will be equipped and empowered to provide the needed care for the young children in their community. These community leaders will face their own experiences with the loss and violence, engage in reconciliation, and become advocates for the healing work that needs to be done in the whole community.
