Adult Forum Series: Briefing on the Democratic Republic of the Congo


January 13
10:00 am - 11:00 am
Adult Forum Series – Where Do We Go from Here?
Please join us this coming Sunday for a briefing on the culture of eastern Congo and the history of the conflict in Democratic Republic of Congo, the original home of the Kabira/Kambere Family. We will hear from Jerry Martin and David Tardif-Doughlin, from DAI, an international development company based in Bethesda with numerous programs in the region. We will also hear from Marie-Rose Sirikari, who came to the United States as a refugee from the DRC many years ago, became a US citizen, and founded the African Women Council here in Montgomery County where she works to help fellow immigrants acclimate and resettle.
