When the Democratic Republic of Congo gained its independence from Belgium in 1960, it should have been a time of moving forward into a future of new hope and prosperity for a country so rich in natural resources. Instead, corruption, exploitation and a return to tribal conflicts, all contributed to the start of a brutal civil war.

That ongoing conflict has taken a terrible toll on the region and it's estimated that more than five million people have died in the DRC - with many many more suffering permanent injury. Kiwis Joy and Murray Stevenson have seen the tragic fallout from that civil war on a personal level, having lived in the DRC for many years - providing essential supplies as well as ongoing support and training to Congolese communities.

During his recent visit back home, Murray Stevenson spoke to Andrew Urquhart about the work of Stevenson Missions, in Africa.
