The war in The Congo affects people in First World countries because
what fuels the war are the minerals that are the heart of our electronics. The mining and distribution of these minerals is run by armies that cannot properly regulate this industry. Communities are murdered by them, women and girls are raped, and some
children choose to be child soldiers to survive, all because the First World needs these minerals, and fast. Have a heart for those who suffer for the sake of your smartphone, laptop, and tablet.
