Miujuza, sow in tears and reap in joy

Miujuza has lived with his family of eight in a camp outside of Goma for a full year. The camp is built on volcanic rock. There is no soil. Even if people could work the land the crops would not grow. Tearfund’s partner is helping him return home by providing materials to contruct a new house and tools and seed to plant crops.
