A critical moment for post war Angola ...

Some of the 4 million people who where displaced during the 27 year war in Angola, which ended in 2002 are still suffering seriously from its after effects.

For some time after the war more than 18,000 people were still suffering severe malnutrition and since then funding cutbacks have forced the UN's World Food Programme to reduce food distribution.

Mines are now a major obstacle for Angolans trying to return to a normal life. Heavily mined areas are causing hundreds of fatalities and severe injury as they return hungry to their homelands. Angola's government is being blamed for doing so little to help it's citizens, even though that the country is reaping the profits of being one of Africa's largest diamond and oil exporters.

To make things worse, in 2005 a severe outbreak of a deadly Ebola-like bug called the Marbug virus has left hundreds dead across the north of the country. Three-quaters of the victims have been children. The spread of the virus has also been blamed on a fractured health service, which still hasn't recovered since the end of the war.
