Surviving the Congo

During the Rwandan genocide 1 million people were killed in a 100 days.

In 1994 the Rwandan genocide ended and the criminals fled to East Congo.  They used 2 million people as human shields. In East Congo they began killing Congolese-Tutsi. In Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo the dictator Mobutu, started having people arrested if suspected to be cooperating with the Rwandan Patriotic Front which ended the genocide and overthrew the dictatorship in Rwanda.
Everyone has a struggle and perseverance story.  Imagine living in fear for your life for weeks on end and surviving when it seemed that others around you were dying.
