UN India in Congo and Food Distribution

People call them the "blue turbans" Indian UN troop in N. Kivu region patrol an area in the rebel controlled area of Laurent Nkunda.
A group of the Rwanda Liberation soldiers settle on the hill opposite of the UN base in N. Kivu.

Food distribution by Heal Africa to an Internally Displaced Camp. Food is distributed to IDP camps by Heal Africa and many AID groups in the area. Several IDP camps have become permanent homes for many who have run from fighting in the Congo. After settling in many decide to not return back to their native home even after the fighting has stopped. Food is distributed only to those holding the proper ID cards. Those from the neighboring village do not receive food.
Aid groups in the Congo rally to claim IDP camps as their territory.
