    “What would make the biggest difference in your life?”
    'Peace.' 'Love.' 'Education.' 'A Hospital.'

    These are only a few of the responses from the children of the eastern DRC, featured in this video, who are daily impacted by the conflict and crisis in their home.

    The new World Vision 'No One To Turn To' report finds children in eastern DRC experience disturbing levels of violence and fear. More than a third (38 per cent) of children interviewed said they were scared all the time or on a daily basis and 36 per cent had experienced or witnessed violence first hand, often extreme and graphic in nature.

    The report serves as an urgent reminder of the importance of child protection and peace-building in the region.
