Gatumba Refugee Camp Massacre

During the night of August 13, 2004, in a refugee camp in Burundi, Africa called Gatumba, 166 innocents from the Democratic Republic of Congo were mercilessly slaughtered by armed factions. These 166, the 116 others who were maimed and injured, and their traumatized families, were almost exclusively members of the “Banyamulenge” tribe, who had earlier been forced from their homes in the southern Kivu region of the DRC.

But since that horrific night, more than 525 Gatumba Survivors have been relocated to safety in North America, to communities from Colorado to Maine and from Texas to Canada, aided by numerous international governmental organizations, nonprofit groups, and countless volunteers.
