A Thousand Sisters against Violence in Congo

A fact for you to digest but only digest because you may not ever be able to fully empathise. 
Since 1998, 5.4 million people have died in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The death toll is the equivalent of an Asian Tsunami every 6.5 months. A September 11 every 2.5 days. And nearly half of the deaths in the Congo are of children under the age of five.
