  • The Democratic Republic of the Congo, DRC or simply the Congo is a beautiful country with a lot to offer nestled in the heart of Africa. It is a place rich in resources, land-mass and population. But, hidden from the outside world, is a harsh and ugly reality which torments its people daily.
    Act
    We all have the ability to make change happen: tell someone, write to someone, sign a petition, and talk about the situation in Congo. When awareness grows, action will follow.
