After we finished the c o n s t r u c t i o n work of our Health Center in Mushapo at the beginning of 2017, we found out that major fighting erupted in the province Kasai. Since these troubles spread around the whole province, it was not safe for Wolfgang and Jean to visit our school in Mushapo.
The unrest started because of foreign mining companies wanting to exploit the natural resources in this region. They want to drive away the population so that they can extract the raw materials more easily, just as they do in eastern Congo. In our area, the Tshokwe tribe chased out all other tribes from Mushapo and the surrounding villages. They also looted all our belongings from the camp, the school and the houses of those who had to flee.ADH Congo Annual Report 2017
