Most Americans have never heard of coltan, yet every phone we use contains it. Mining it illegally in the Congo is responsible for sexual violence, slavery, and murder - get the facts.
While every other continent prospers, the Congo in Africa is home to over 750,00 orphans as a result of the deadliest conflict since WWII; mainstream American media ignores it.
When the U.S. becomes aware of coltan - what it is, how it is mined, and who pays the price - we can demand that our manufacturers obtain it legally, not at the hands of women and children forced to work in deadly mines.
We urge you to leave your prayers - Anonymously, if it suits you - and to visit our sister site at www.linkcongo.org to find out how you can directly help the people of the Congo, monetarily and/or with volunteer work just one hour per week.
