Some places in Africa are very beautiful. Places like Cape town, South Africa. It has a beautiful mountain and amazing food. The weather there is very nice and has a lot of tourists coming in.
As of today children in Africa are still in slavery. The diamonds that are mined are sometimes used to pay for a civil war. The children are not paid, they only get occasional food, and teared up clothing. They work for the whole day.

Fresh water is necessary for all human life. While a lot of places are low on water Africa has a huge water shortage. Even if there is water, it is very dirty and unhealthy to drink. To get the water women and children have to walk for hours and bring back 40 pounds of dirty water. This can lead to many health problems.
