Africa's Refugee Children

Nowhere on Earth are people fleeing their homes than in Africa’s
Great Lakes region. With an average of over 5,500 people a day
in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the total number of
people displaced is now over 4 million, outpacing Syria, Yemen
and Iraq. And yet donor fatigue, geopolitical disinterest and
competing crises means that the Congo is the second lowest
funded of the world’s biggest crises. Tanzania's refugee camps
are overcrowded and underfunded, and yet still better than what
awaits them back home. It is heartbreaking to witness life for
these children.
