Congo Bleeding for cobalt: A silent Genocide

Donation protected
The Democratic Republic of Congo is currently witnessing one of its worst phases of violence, exploitation and displacement in history, with approximately 6 million citizens internally displaced. The quest for cobalt and extremist militias waging war in eastern provinces of Congo are causing a silent genocide of the Congolese. Collaborative efforts should prioritise civilian safety, stability promotion, and the development of long-term solutions to end the cycle of violence that has afflicted the region for far too long.

I am reaching out to you with a heavy heart but also with a profound sense of duty. Congo is bleeding. As a Congolese woman, I am deeply aware of the ongoing crisis in Goma Congo, where families are being displaced due to conflict and instability. Bombs are being dropped, mothers are being raped and kids are being ripped from their parents. It’s a reality that cannot be ignored, and it is a responsibility that we all should feel.

We are launching this crowdfunding campaign to support the non-profit organisations "Focus Congo" and "Friends of Congo" that are tirelessly working on the ground in Congo to provide aid and assistance to those who need it most. The money will also be used to possibly ship shoes and clothes to the camps. Every euro raised will go directly to these organisations, who are doing incredible work despite facing immense challenges themselves. From providing food and shelter to offering acute medical care, education but also joy for the traumatised kids lives. They are making a real difference in the lives of displaced families. Both organisations are very transparent and post the developments in these camps. But they can't do it alone. They need our support. They need our solidarity. They need our help.

I urge you to join us in this mission. We are all indirectly responsible for what’s going on in Congo, when it comes to the constant exploitation of the people and their land for raw materials they need for our phones, cars and other electronic devices. This needs to stop!

Together, we can bring hope to those who need it most.

Thank you for your support.
