02/06/2023 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – The war disproportionately affecting Christians in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) uprooted Kavira’s family. Her father, mother, and three siblings survived an ambush from radical Muslim terrorists on April 9, 2022, and fled to Beni empty-handed after their house was set on fire.

At the time, Kavira was in college when her family was forced to abandon everything they had known. Kavira was faced with no other choice but to drop out of school due to her parents’ financial situation. She hoped to continue school, but with three years of tuition ahead of her, she wasn’t sure if she’d be able to.

In response to her story, ICC paid for one full year at a new university where she’ll pursue her ultimate dream of studying medicine.

“I thank ICC so much for this great support that has been given to me, because as the time in DRC is very difficult, I had no hope that I can get such support to go back to school… Now I hope that I will be a strong person to help the suffering people in the DRC when I complete my studies,” said Kavira.
