United Nations peacekeeping
troops have been in Congo
for 22 years from 1960 to 2017.
Today, 125 nations contribute to maintaining
some 22,590 personnel in DR Congo. The United
Nations peacekeeping mission in the DR Congo
is very expensive. The one year UN cost to June
2017 in Congo is $1,235,723,100 billion US dollars.
The USA contributes 28.3626% of that amount; thus
the USA contributes $350,483,199.9606 million US
dollars for just this one year.
Thus the USA alone since the 1960s has contributed billions that if had not been needed, could have been used at home for USA problems. The DR Congo peacekeeping mission is the single largest contribution of UN resources anywhere in the world. Very costly. This adds up to a large amount of scarce financial and human resources over decades tied up there that could be used elsewhere, if solutions were found to the Congo problem. It is Congo Freedom Alliance’s purpose is to be part of the solution so the DRC is no longer a drain on African continent and world resources.
Congo Freedom Alliance welcomes any ideas that contribute to improving the lives of all Congolese - especially for the children, who are the future.
