ORPHAN CRISIS IN DR CONGO

The Democratic Republic of Congo has been in a state of conflict and chaos since 1998, which marks the beginning of the Second Congo War. More than 5 million people have died in this conflict, making it one of the world’s deadliest wars. A striking 47% of those deaths were children under the age of five. Today, the nation remains in a state of desperation. Nearly 1 million people in the Congo have been displaced, forced to leave their homes. As a result, poverty, insecurity, sexual violence, and lack of social services have all taken a toll, according to a report from UNICEF.

The biggest issue faced in the Democratic Republic of Congo is war. The essence of war has left the country broken with a multitude of issues. Because of this, children were orphaned and left to defend themselves from the harsh realities of life.
