Learn/Take Action—Congo Week, Oct 17-23

The Congo is the greatest humanitarian crisis on the planet–an average of 1,500 people die as a result of the conflict in the Congo EVERY DAY.

EVERY DAY

Since 1996, nearly 6 million dead–and how often do you hear about it on the news? Half of that 6 million killed, have been children. According to the United Nations, it is the deadliest conflict since World War II. Our level of awareness is deplorable and we simply don’t know enough to be outraged, though outrage is the only humane reaction possible.

BREAK THE SILENCE CONGO WEEK is meant to raise awareness and raise our voices in solidarity with the people of the Congo. Please find out more this week. I know next to nothing about Congo, but I promise, by the time you read this, I will know more. Do the same, and talk about it. It costs nothing to be an advocate. Take action here.
