HandUp Congo’s team sends best wishes for a meaningful new year to our fellow Congo supporters, as we watch events unfolding in the DRC. It’s been another tough year.
Our Congolese friends and colleagues continue to struggle with daily challenges, from election-related violence to lack of leadership, which has placed the country at the bottom of the U.N.’s World Development Index.
