Huambo, Angola 2010. Eight years had passed since the end of Angola’s 27-year civil war, yet the scars were still apparent. Structures can be rebuilt but not the 500,000 lives lost in the war. Sadly, the world is little safer today. According to the Global Peace Index, only ten countries are totally free from conflict while 12.6% of global GDP ($1953 per person) is lost through violence.
