MPA provided seeds to thousands of displaced people in Minembwe, Bijombo and Rurambo areas.
MPA women assist more than 300 Mikenke displaced families

MPA provided Irish potatoes and other improved seeds to thousands of displaced people living in various villages of the Minembwe area. This important initiative is meant to fight extreme hunger which has been going on since the beginning of mai mai attacks, looting and ethnic cleansing against Banyamulenge, which started back in April 2017. With new seeds, displaced people in the high plateaus of Uvira, Mwenga and Fizi are expecting to produce important harvest which will relieve hunger and contribute to settle people in their respective villages. Since the beginning of attacks, displaced people did not get any humanitarian assistance.

MPA is proudly supporting displaced families in Bijombo / Murambya areas

Mahoro Peace initiative (MPA) is proudly supporting Bijombo/ Murambya areas population victims of militias attacks. The above mentioned area have been seriously affected by the recurring militias attacks and was not accessible for several months because mai mai militias and their Burundians allies have been controlling in and out access paths. MPA in partnership with local population of Uvira pleaded with local government authorities to open an access way to reach out to displaced families in need of humanitarian assistance in Murambya/Bijombo areas. Last May 2020, MPA managed finally to reach out with support to those trapped families. The need for Humanitarian aid in these areas still huge. We are inviting volunteers to partner with us to support people in needs

Banyamulenge of the High plateau of Fizi, Uvira and Mwenga need safety first but also food, accomodation & shelter. Minembwe women are under siege, they live at the epicenter of the Banyamulenge ethnic cleancing perpetuated by mai mai & Red Tabara militias. The use of sexual violence and torture against innocent Banyamulenge women is part of an overall strategy to destroy the Banyamulenge people and to uproot them from thier land.
