Why DR Congo?
The second-largest country in Africa has faced a series of crises over the past decades. Complex reasons for DR Congo’s crises include multiple armed groups, a lack of essential services like water or health care, and inadequate roads and bridges that lead to isolation for families living in remote communities. There is no simple narrative or easy solution in DR Congo, which may explain why the country does not receive more media attention or funding support, despite the magnitude of the crisis.
