report Christian Aid

By Michael Arunga, Programme Communications Advisor, Christian Aid.

One might be forgiven for assuming that any country overflowing with valuable natural resources is also, by definition, overflowing with wealth and prosperity. History, however, has taught us otherwise. This is certainly the case for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Rich in gold, gas, diamonds and other rare minerals, this vast nation is also home to one of the worst – and most under-reported – humanitarian crises of recent times.

Most households depend largely on firewood and charcoal for domestic energy needs, including cooking.
