A (very) Brief History of the DRC:
The DRC has been plagued with wars since its independence in 1960 and fighting continues in some areas to date. The people of the DRC have suffered at the hands of nationals, rebel groups and guerrilla armies from neighbouring countries.
The cost of warfare has not only resulted in tragic loss of life from but has also seen loss of property, orphaned children, war crimes in the form of sexual violence, increase rate of AIDs, degeneration of existing infrastructure and delayed development. These wars have also increased the rates of death due to malaria, diarrhoea, pneumonia and malnutrition.
