This week, we come back to the mission carried out by the Service of Relations with Auditors and project managers of RFI Clubs, in a refugee camp in Lusenda, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in December 2019.


During this mission, many activities were carried out: creation of library, setting up of a cinema, football tournament ... The novelty is the creation of a choir in the camp to allow young refugees to highlight their talent, to forget the difficulties of everyday life, and to strengthen social cohesion between refugees and the local population.

A new experience shared with us Chrystelle NAMMOUR (responsible for RFI Clubs projects), Daniel RUGAMIKA, director of the “Children's Choir of the RFI Bukavu Club” and two young Burundian refugees, members of the choir Bella and Fidel. Audrey IATTONI and Sébastien BONIJOL give an update on the prospects for supporting RFI Clubs, for this year 2020.

Music: " Yo Pe " - Innoss'B
Realization: Cécile BONICI.
