CONGO AWARENESS WEEK Success!
Great Lakes Restoration marked the worldwide Congo Week in October with a program of events called Congo Awareness Week designed to call attention to the plight of the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The program was organized and sponsored by the Bukavu Action Team - the GLR student organization at Johns Hopkins University. Information about the past, a review of the current situation and a prospectus for the future of the DRC was presented in conjunction with a fundraising effort in support of Pigs for Peace and other GLR projects.
