The rich resources of the Democratic Republic of Congo brought wealth to relatively few and violence to many. No area has been more affected than the eastern province of North Kivu. Brothers of Charity Sante Mental, a mental health facility, was created in the provincial capital of Goma. Their resources are thin, so they rely on relatives to help with care. Untrained and often accustomed to using restraints on their loved ones, the level of care relatives provide is rarely optimal, as can be seen here where a woman living with a mental health condition is dragged by a relative.

جلبت الموارد الغنية لجمهورية الكونغو الديمقراطية الثروة لعدد قليل نسبياً من السكّان والعنف للكثيرين منهم. وكانت كيفو الشرقية أكثر المناطق المتضررة من مقاطعة الشمال. تم إنشاء مركز برازرز أوف تشاريتي للصحة العقلية في عاصمة مقاطعة غوما. ولأنّ مواردهم ضعيفة، فهم يعتمدون على الأقارب للمساعدة في الرعاية، بحيث كان معظمهم غير مدربين وغالباً ما يعتادون على تكبيل أحبائهم لذا يُقدّمون رعاية صحية سيئة، كما يمكن رؤيته في هذه الصورة حيث يتم جرّ امرأة تعاني من أمراض عقلية على يد أحد أقاربها. جمهورية الكونغو الديمقراطية، يونيو 2011
