Mines in Congo
How do you hire people to go to mines? This is how you hire them, they are being point by guns, Life treats, Physical forced. The biggest reason is to protect yourself or your family, just because we need phones, and maybe we don’t even need them. Some people is using there phone to play games or using facebook. Imagine that, if you are the people that works in the mines what will you feel? Will you feel anger, tired or maybe you think that why is the world so not fair, why do i have to born in this place. I think this is a really big problem for the world.
Children In Congo
Some children are only 7, and are already being force to work in the mines, just because of the people for using phones. Why is the kids working in mines? The kids are working in the mines is because of us, because we need phone so maybe sometimes the company in Congo needs the kids to help them, because they don’t have enough people to make the phones. This is one of the biggest issue in Congo.
People says that Congo is a rich country, but why is the people poor in Congo. One of the issue is there government, if a country’s government can’t work well, the country’s people will be suffering in any problems such as starvation. I think Congo needs a good government to do the right things for there people.
What Can We do to help them?
When i was doing this research i found two websites, one is to help the children’s in money, if you press inside the website, you can donate moneys to the children’s in Congo to help. Let the kids in Congo stop suffering and give them education. The other website is teaching you how to save the peoples in Congo and give them hope.
