"I had eight sons; they were killed together with my husband and they pumped bullets into my body." Habagasi, Mugunga Camp, DRC.

Everyday we treat people with injuries from guns, machetes, lances, rifle bayonets, knives, hammers, shells, bows and arrows. For those on the receiving end, there is no escape from the violence ravishing eastern DR Congo.

Habagasi, an 80-year-old woman living in deplorable conditions at a camp on the outskirts of Goma, has been looking after the orphaned children left behind when her family were murdered; "I had eight sons; they were killed together with my husband and they pumped bullets into my body."

Having fled for their lives, Habagasi and her grandchildren thought they'd be safe at an 'official' displaced persons camp, but the violence continued; "The first month here, M23 raided. They looted our food rations, clothes, phones... they stole all of that. They did bad things to me."

Habagasi is not alone in suffering violence at the hands of armed groups. Munyasadimana, who also lives in the camp, was shot by rebels; "I was shot. I can no longer use my hand to grow food for my children. I was shot even though I wasn't fighting anyone or committing any crime."
