Drodro, Djugu, Ituri, Democratic Republic of Congo

Lance Corporal Maidul, a MONUSCO (United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo) peacekeeper from Bangladesh looks through a pair of binoculars from his security post at an IDP camp.

There are at least 5.5 million internally displaced people (IDPs) in the DRC, mostly in the eastern provinces. In Ituri province alone there are 1.7 million IDPs, over a quarter of the population. 100 armed groups operate in the east and the result of this mostly ethnic violence is the largest unreported conflict in the world.
