In which John Green teaches you about the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which used to be Zaire, which used to be The Belgian Congo, which used to be the Congo Free State, which used to be the region surrounding the Congo River Basin in central Africa. So the history of this place is a little convoluted. The history of Congo is central to the history of central Africa, and the Congo Wars embroiled neighboring countries like Uganda and Rwanda. John will talk you through the history of Congo and the region.

In a makeshift workshop inside DRC's largest refugee camp, Lusenda, a group of disabled Burundian refugees are turning scrap metal into cooking pots, pans, irons and other kitchen utensils. The association's earnings are divided equally amongst the group's 32 members and Mathias Nzorigendera, the group's president and founder, says their products are filling a gap in Lusenda's refugee market. The group is a symbol of resilience and hope for disabled refugees in the camp, most of whom depend on aid to survive. But much more help is needed to help the group become self-reliant.

Many suffer serious sexual and physical abuse while kept in armed groups, living with a daily fear of violence and the prospect of fighting. Because of such experiences, these same girls are often abandoned by family members and shunned from community life. Through promoting girls’ involvement in community life, access to education, peer-to-peer support and many other ideas that we firmly believe can radically change the lives of former girl soldiers in the country. We want your help to change this. All donations to the appeal go directly towards our work with communities and local partners on how to better support these girls.

Military operations are underway against Islamist rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo. They are accused of killing hundreds of people in the east of the country in recent months. The United Nations fears they are just getting started. CCTV's Clementine Logan has been granted rare access to the force the UN has deployed against the group.
Since 1994, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been rent by ethnic strife and civil war, touched off by a massive inflow of refugees fleeing the Rwandan Genocide. This period of conflict has been the bloodiest in history since World War II. Almost 4 million people have died as a result of the fighting. The United Nations is concerned that 1000 people a day are still dying as a result of the conflict. Most of these deaths were due to starvation or disease that resulted from the war, not from actual fighting. Millions more have become internally displaced or have sought asylum in neighboring countries. Brit Olam's emergency unit - I Relief is gathering aid efforts for the refugees in DRC with the support of the Congo refugees, living in Israel. I Relief is now mount...

Justin "The Viking" Wren is a former professional Mixed Martial Artist who is now fighting for a cause much bigger than himself, for human rights in the Congo. The conditions are dire and while Justin is embedded with the Pygmy population to help drill wells so that they may have fresh water, they have limited resources for fresh water in the meantime. Help us raise the money for this AquaSun Responder S filter than can filter up to 100 Gallons of water every single day, using solar power alone. Time is of the essence, and I'm hoping to get this on it's way near Valentine's Day, 2014. (only 2 weeks)
