UNICEF Ambassador Lucy Liu will visit UNICEF projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo next week. If you have questions for Lucy Liu about the DR Congo and her trip there, please post them in the comments section of this post. She will post answers to some of your questions here. I'm sure she would appreciate your wishes for a productive, safe field visit too. A long and brutal civil war in the DR Congo ended in 2003, but the people of the DR Congo are still struggling: €¢ Children who were associated with armed groups during the conflict now need help to re-enter society, re-connect with their families, and get back in school. €¢ Women and children who suffered horrifying violence during the conflict need psychological and medical care. €¢ Less than half the population has access to clean water. Diarrhea and other water-borne diseases are a constant threat.
