Neglected communities in places like central Africa live with the daily threat of violence from multiple armed groups. Without basic government support or communications systems, they are left completely unprotected with no way to call for help.
People aren’t the only targets. In remote and economically poor places like these, communities and criminals alike depend on the natural environment for their survival. Armed groups like the LRA terrorize communities while funding their crimes through illegal wildlife poaching and trafficking. These cycles of violence and exploitation threaten the very existence of entire communities and their ecosystems.
