The Congolese region is one of the most widely ignored despite the magnitude of Human Rights abuses, violence particularly against Girls and Women,  extreme sexual violence, death caused by violence, death by AIDS, extreme poverty, suffering the result of colonialism, the result of the draining natural resources dry by western and European capitalism thus hemorrhage those resources from the people, child soldiers, slave labor for the wealth of coltan, diamonds, and oil all for the funds earned to wind up into the pocket of those who colonize and exploit- leaving the people as one of the most financially impoverished in the world despite the fact the Congo is the 19th-highest Gross Domestic Product. In short it is one of the richest and most relied upon countries in the world but for the actual people the of the region the poorest.
