Dear GIERAF Members,
Dear Colleagues,
Dear Partners,
Dear Friends of GIERAF,
Honorary Societies and International Organizations,

We are sensitive to your attachment to our society. We were preparing to meet you in Kinshasa on the occasion of the 7th International GIERAF Congress, but the current situation surrounding the organization of this Congress have imposed important discussions and urgent decision-making.

The latest developments in the socio-political and security situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo related to the ongoing electoral process do not guarantee a peaceful atmosphere for the preparation and welcoming reception of the various delegations. We are aware of each other's fears. Despite the stakes involved in this decision, the immense inconvenience that this setback certainly represents and for reasons beyond our control, we have decided to cancel the GIERAF Kinshasa Congress scheduled for February 5th to 8th 2019. The measures taken to offset the cancellation of this deadline will be communicated later.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused by this situation.

GIERAF President
Dr Mohamed LATOUNDJI
