* UNICEF: Supplies distributed in the wake of conflict in Goma, DR Congo
Shoot Country: Congo
* 21 Sep 2007

Crowds line the road outside Goma to cheer on the cavalcade of President Joseph Kabila. His presence here critical to peace especially for the town of Sake, newly secured by MONUC and Congolese forces. Weeks of heavy fighting here triggered off a humanitarian crisis leaving ghost towns across the area.

SOUNDBITE: Pastor Safari Maywono, Sake: “All the people left this village because of the war with Laurent Nkunda. The military came to the village and the people got scared and left.”

This is where many came – Mugunga camp -- walking on foot to seek help. Already UNICEF and partners, Solidarites have assisted 120 000 displaced people; registering and monitoring their needs. Hundreds of bags in emergency stocks in warehouses are filled with essentials – cooking utensils, blankets, plastic sheeting, soap and water bottles. Trucks are loaded up and sent off and a new round of distribution begins.

As fast as supplies are handed out, the displaced keep coming, waiting in line for help. Children separated from their families and now alone, get VIP treatment. These are the most vulnerable to being recruited by the many armed forces in the region and a process of tracing their families has to kick in urgently.

Education has been put on hold in the conflict. School benches now used by aid workers not learners.

They check and recheck lists, making sure no one gets pushed aside. Mothers with babies and small children need special care. Malaria is the biggest killer here, mosquito nets are life savers.

SOUNDBITE: Sylvia Danailov, UNICEF emergency coordinator, DRC: “Many families like those here have fled their homes with nothing except the clothes on their back, especially children who lost their parents in the fleeing, so doing this distribution helps them restore a bit of normalcy in their lives while being displaced and waiting for the situation to get better.”

Food distribution will be next. Until a lasting regional political solution is found for this crisis -- this is as good as it gets for now.
