The children displaced in DR Congo conflict

The Democratic Republic of Congo is facing a forgotten crisis. According to the UN, the country has one of the largest displaced populations in the world – more people there have fled their homes than in places like Yemen or Afghanistan. Approximately 42% of all displaced people in the world are children. We speak to a 14-year-old boy, who we are calling Blukwa, who has found a home in an isolated camp on a remote hillside in the eastern part of DR Congo where the violence is at its worst.Footage from the camp, including an interview, was provided to the BBC by Unicef.
