Nearly two decades of armed conflict and unrest in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have led to millions of internally displaced and refugee individuals.  Refugee resettlement agencies in Philadelphia have been resettling Congolese for the past few years in our region.  BuildaBridge and the Philadelphia Refugee Mental Health Collaborative are responding by offering Congolese refugees art therapy and therapeutic art-making groups in the community context.  Since the summer of 2014, BuildaBridge has served 17 participants from the DRC.
