Ituri is the area which includes Aru and Boga Dioceses. During the years 1999-2002 tens of thousands were killed and 400,000 displaced. The conflict was much greater in Boga than Aru. Underlying it was a long-time confrontation between the Lendu (subsistence farmers) and Hema (cattle owners).

Since then the strife has smouldered on. 

A few days ago, Lendu massacred about 30 Hema in an area and burnt homes. Hema have now started congregating in Bunia.

There is great unrest and as a result, many people are dying or fleeing their homes with nothing.  If you are able, please share with your churches and praying friends.
