🇨🇩🇨🇩It's time for the truth! Everyone who owns a mobile phone has a part of Congo in them!
Children as young as 3 years old are digging up minerals for our happiness. My new song is about my country and my people!
According to the UN children's agency, UNICEF, about 40,000 children work in cobalt mines in the Democratic Republic of Congo. For a shift of up to 24 hours underground, most earn less than $2 (1.80 euro) a day - many receive half of that.
The largest cobalt deposits in the world are found in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. According to Amnesty International, at least 50 percent of the world's cobalt is mined there. It is therefore impossible to rule out the possibility that cobalt from the Congo would end up with companies all over the world.
I am BM and I am starting a campaign, who's with me? #NoCongoNoPhone
