Several civil wars have been raging throughout Africa for hundreds of years. Most of these wars are over land, some are over religious reasons. Point is that Africans can't really agree on anything. There are several countries throughout Africa that have been at war for hundreds of years. The wars have left most of Africa in poverty, deprived of food, shelter, and clean water. 9.1 million people have been forced from their homes due to fighting. While the United Nations are helping as much as they can most of the fighting countries wont accept aid from foreigners so the UN have to recruit people in Africa to aid those in need.
