Rudi International are running their Christmas programme again for young people and their families in the Lac Vert area of Goma: once an IDP camp but now a fixed abode for many households. This year, in addition to their celebrations and providing food on Christmas Day, they hope to increase their education programmes for young people and to run creative workshops for young people and mothers in the community. 10 of The Congo Tree team will be supporting the project and volunteering over the Christmas period along with Arsène and Medi, who are organising it.
