Kibumba refugee camp in North Kivu Kibumba refugee camp
Outside of the North Kivu town of Goma, these Rwandan refugee camps were formed in 1994 as 1.5 to 2 million refugees fled their country due to serious ethnic tensions which resulted in widespread killing.    More than 80 different international relief agencies had set up programs to provide shelter, food and health services to the refugees.   The photos above are those of the Kibumba camp with an estimated 250,000 people.
