Sent $2.5 billion between 2003 and 2011


BRUSSELS, Oct. 1 (UPI) — Efforts made by the European Union to provide assistance to the Democratic Republic of Congo resulted in limited progress, an audit found.

The European Union has provided $2.5 billion in assistance to the DRC government from 2003-11. A report published Tuesday by the European Court of Auditors found the assistance didn't have much of an effect.
