Bringing awareness and hope into the lives of women and girls trapped in a world of violence & abuse

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is still undergoing a deadly war-even in the face of "cease fire" agreement.  The conflict has to date has claimed the lives of over 5.4 million people.  This war wages on and the effects of the war have been devastating- over 45,000 people continue to die each month.  Sexual violence and abuse have caused the Eastern Congo to be known as the "Most Dangerous Place in the World for women" .  Not only is sexual violence running rampant, but so is hunger and disease among the one million or more people that have been displaced from their homes as a result of the violence. 

Raise Hope for Congo is a site where activists from all over the world can connect to spread awareness of the conflict and spur the world involvement to assist in bringing an end to the violence and atrocities that are being inflicted on innocent victims every day.  Take a second and join the fight to help spread the word.
