    I never realised the screen was so close to the reporter in these video interviews.
    It's good to see celebrities doing their research and finding (not so typical) places that need help too.

    My views on this subject of the DRC is that to much money is spent on the government and the high ranking officials. The soldiers that perform these rapes should be the ones targeted for rehabilitation.
    Their needs exceed their income that they receive and on this type of renumeration they can barely survive and therefore cannot establish family life.
    Start by rebuilding the small villages with the stability of services and infrastructure and give the soldiers in the area a worth for living and not the government. Africa is a wasted Gold mine used to the advantage of the few explorers and those in command. This wealth should be redistributed among the poor. But they should work and build some integrety.

    My wish is to be in contact with Ben Affleck. I am a Belgium born African that knows the difficulties in the Growth of Africa having visited many African Countries and understands the wishes and dreams of the African Nations.
