The Democratic Republic of Congo

Sisters of Charity Congregational Stand:

We, Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, commit ourselves to be informed about the human rights violations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and call on our government to do everything in its power to end the violent conflicts there through the following actions:
  • Pass legislation that would help stop trade in conflict minerals that is sustaining a brutal war of unfathomable atrocities in the Congo, especially against women.
  • Create conditions of security for the return of displaced peoples to their lands.
  • Provide diplomatic support from the US Government for MONUSCO (the UN Organization Stabilization Mission) so that it can fulfill its mandate of forestalling armed attacks against local communities and enforcing the UN arms embargo on Congo.
  • Continue high-level US diplomatic engagement with the African Union, European Union and the United Nations to avert wider regional armed conflict. We further commit ourselves to pray for the people in the Congo and for their leaders.
