Mwamini Deboreh (centre) with her new born baby Esperance, waits, with two other women, to see medical staff at a health post run by Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) at Mugunga 1. The camp, sited west of Goma, was mostly populated by people fleeing bitter fighting in the region of Masisi. However, on 20 November 2012 a force, mainly made up of disaffected Tutsi soldiers (calling themselves M23) who deserted from the Congolese Army earlier in the year, marched into Goma causing the panicked inhabitants to flee the camp. On their return the residents, swelled by newly displaced, found their tents and belongings had been stolen.
