DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO. 2008. Mr. Monozande: "The war came and the rebels massacred my whole village and my family (my wife and 8 children). I was shot so many times I do not know how I survived. I often dream about armed men hunting me down or of my family being alive - But when I wake up I am alone and terrified. I want to escape to another country where I will be safe. Thank you."
