Description of ActivityEastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have for decades been plagued by chronic instability, violence, war, and extreme human suffering. Millions have died in the 25 years since the long Rwandan Civil War ignited a continental conflict. Conflict related sexual violence and use of child soldiers have been endemic, amid extensive Crimes against Humanity, War Crimes, and repeated accusations of Genocide. Despite the presence of the world’s largest peacekeeping mission, the United Nations Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO), violence continues to this day.
