The crisis in theDemocratic Republic of Congo continues to be highly underreported. Although there are many humanitarian needs in the world, the case of the Congo, has been deemed to have the worst sexual violence in the world by John Holmes, UN Undersecretary General for Humanitarian Affairs. New reports show that more than 420,000 women in the Democratic Republic of Congo are raped each year -- roughly 48 per hour and 1,152 per day. In our minds that is unacceptable and we can do something to help them. Peace, change, and stability can only come to these regions with a vested interest from the global community.
