IRC Voices: Alyoscia D'Onofrio
Alyoscia D'Onofrio, International Rescue Committee regional director for the Great Lakes region of Africa, calls the IRC a beacon of hope. Its also a home for Alyoscia, who is now in his eleventh year at the organization. He recalls working in eastern Congo during an insurgent uprising and helping demobilized children who had fought with militia groups. Most of all, Alyoscia remembers the tenacity and courage IRC Congolese staff displayed during difficult time.
