'Ebola outbreak is only the tip of the iceberg'
As part of the Forgotten Crisis campaign, Malteser International has been been calling attention to the deteriorating situation in DRC for quite some time. The Ebola outbreak in DR Congo has brought the country back into our headlines, but the news have hardly told the story of a larger humanitarian crisis already unfolding in the country.
