Eastern Congo humanitarian crisis

Afrol news reports that after the huge worldwide response to help tsunami victims, humanitarian aid for Africa has now almost dried up.

"We need money and we need it now," said top UN humanitarian official Jan Egeland. The situation in the eastern part of DR Congo is "the biggest, most neglected humanitarian emergency in the world today," he stated.

  1. Hi David and Lori-

    Welcome to the world of Blogs! Looks great.
    I just discovered your site after visiting the Woodcocks today (they gave me a copy of your Christmas letter). I hope you don't mind, but I reprinted your section on Kasongo Munza in my Blog and added your Blog to my links.
