help protect civilians in the drc...

the situation in the democratic republic of congo (sic) remains on the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe...the priority at the moment is reinforcing the capacity of the u.n.'s peacekeeping force, monuc to protect civilians and to ensure people have access to humanitarian assistance...

the following days are crucial as the u.n. security council is expected to vote on boosting the peacekeepers any day...your help is urgently needed to keep on calling on the u.s. government to support the troop increase...

it's high time for regional leaders and the u.n. security council to step up its efforts: at least 250,000 civilians, most of them women and children, were displaced by the recent fighting...these people are in a desperate situation, without sufficient food, water, medical supplies or shelter, and cannot wait any longer...

urge the u.s. government to strengthen u.n. peacekeepers
drc: demonstrate leadership to address crisis immediately
