Oxfam response to African leaders and UN Secretary General statement following Nairobi meeting

By Oxfam

Juliette Prodhan, head of Oxfam in the Democratic Republic of Congo said:

?An immediate ceasefire is desperately needed. Fresh fighting around the town of Kibati today just 2kms north of Goma forced thousands of weary people to flee in panic yet again and seriously jeopardizes the ability of aid agencies like Oxfam to help them.

?The UN peacekeeping force needs more troops not just greater powers. There are clearly not enough troops to provide the security and protection so desperately needed not just around Goma but elsewhere in eastern Congo as well.

?It?s one thing to sit in Nairobi deliberating about what needs to be done. We have had a lot of talk about action—we now need to see that talk put into action.?
