In Pictures: Seeking Shelter

We often speak of the “Darfur crisis” or the “Congo conflict”. On one hand, these situations are separate and distinct. However, on the other hand, Congo, Darfur, South Sudan, and other African humanitarian disasters are often intertwined.

Consider a recent eye-opening slideshow created by BBC News containing pictures of Congolese people fleeing to South Sudan in an effort to escape attacks carried out by Uganda’s rebel Lord’s Resistance Army.

Congo has one set of problems. South Sudan has another. Makes you wonder whether these individuals are fleeing from adversity only to find it once more – just with a change in scenery.
