If we look at these developments in detail, we see that not all children benefit in the same way from such advances. In order to achieve equity for all children in the DRC, it is important to conduct a thorough analysis about disparities and inequalities between these children.

She is only 36, but looks about ten years older. Her name, Ghaniyah, means “wealthy woman” in Arabic.
