OVERVIEW

The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is the largest country in Sub-Saharan Africa. Past conflict over the country’s rich supply of natural resources immersed the DRC into one of the greatest humanitarian crises in the world; insecurity, disease, and malnutrition continue to burden the Congolese.
