Take Action | RAISE Hope for Congo

Take Action | RAISE Hope for Congo.

The situation in eastern Congo is dire. Government and rebel militias fight to control Congo’s mines, which are rich with natural resources. Profits from conflict minerals fund horrific violence. Congo’s disorganized military and police do little to stop it. Armed groups, operating without accountability, use rape and murder to intimidate civilians.

Since 1996, over 5.5 million have died from war-related causes. Countless women and children have been raped. Congo’s wars ended in 2003, yet more than 2.5 million people live as refugees

RAISE Hope for Congo, a campaign of the Enough Project, aims to build a permanent and diverse constituency of activists who will advocate for the human rights of all Congolese citizens and work towards ending the ongoing conflict in eastern Congo.

If you have a cell phone, then you have a direct connection to the deadliest war in the world. The conflict in eastern Congo is fueled by a multi-million dollar trade in minerals – tin, tungsten, tantalum (3T’s), and gold – which power our cell phones, laptops, and other electronics. Urge the biggest buyers of the 3T’s and gold – major electronics companies – to produce conflict-free products.
