• Justice NOW for DR Congo CAMPAIGN

    Help us create a civilian-based, independently-funded Congo Tribunal. In the last 20 years, 7 million people have fallen victim to the bloodiest economic war in History. In 2015 Milo Rau set up the first Congo Tribunal, a civilian trial bringing together actual victims and perpetrators, government and opposition, international mining companies and local miners in front of a jury of international and Congolese experts. For the first time people outspoke the crimes committed to them and confronted their perpetrators. Help us make The Congo Tribunal an institution!

  • DR Congo sets presidential election for December 2018

    Election officials in the Democratic Republic of Congo say a long-overdue presidential election will finally take place in December 2018. The election commission had recently said elections could not take place until 2019, citing deadly violence in the Kasai region and logistical hurdles. The country has seen widespread anger over President Joseph Kabila's refusal to relinquish power after his second full term ended in December 2016. He had taken power after his father was assassinated in 2001, and was elected in 2006 and 2011.

The campaign, "UN-Congo nouveau" (French play on words about the UN and a new Congo), involved 18 concerts across the neighbourhoods of Kinshasa, each one before an audience of 1000-2000 people, including local authorities and media. Performed by local music stars "Washiba” in the 4 offical local languages, the show combined music and interactive theatre to raise public awareness about peace and protection of civilians, the rule of law and economic development in DR Congo, all key priorities of the UN in DRC.

Approximately 1,000 people attended, including the Congolese Minister of Foreign affairs, representatives of the Congolese government and the diplomatic corps, UN officials, civil society and students.

Eng/French/Nat Thanks to advances in modern medicine, Polio is a disease that is virtually unknown in the developed world. But in parts of war-ravaged African nations like the Democratic Republic of Congo, it still claims lives. The highly infectious disease affects the spinal cord and brain, causing paralysis and sometimes death. It usually affects children under five years old. The United Nations and its agencies hope to vaccinate children and eradicate polio worldwide by 2005. Carol Bellamy, UNICEF's Executive Director has launched the campaign in the D-R-C with a tour across the country. The extensive itinerary included rebel-held parts of the vast country. UNICEF claims to have vaccinated up to 90 percent of the Congo's 11 (m) million under-fives. In Kisanagani, health workers trudged through burned out houses and streets destroyed by shelling to vaccinate children. This city in eastern D-R-C has been the scene of recent clashes between Rwandan and Ugandan forces. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The major challenge to polio eradication is war. In countries like the Congo this is the most difficult thing. But the fact is we have had more success than last year. So we are encouraged." SUPER CAPTION: Carol Bellamy, UNICEF Executive Director In Kisanagani the mothers of the vaccinated children expressed their joy at the arrival of the UNICEF health workers. SOUNDBITE: (French) "I am happy to see you vaccinating the children. I am happy." SUPER CAPTION: Annie Kibonge, Mother But the UNICEF vaccination programme is not without risks. In a previous round of immunizations last month, a nurse was killed and two aid workers injured in an ambush in the east of the country. A third and final round is scheduled for October, bringing the total cost this year to 18 (m) million U-S dollars. In the diamond town of Mbuji-Mayi, which is still under government control, Bellamy herself showed how to give a small child a polio vaccination. Back in D-R-C's capital Kinshasa, UNICEF volunteers are packing cool-boxes with vaccines. Here at the Health Ministry the vaccines are stored in a large freezer as the vaccine needs to be kept in cold storage to stay alive. The success of this UNICEF campaign is mainly thanks to the energy of the many volunteers, despite the logistical nightmares. The country's Health Minister admits that many areas can only be reached by plane and he criticizes the previous Mobutu regime for the serious degradation of the country's medical infrastructures. SOUNDBITE: (French) "Under the Second Republic (the Mobutu regime) the mal-administration caused the degradation of our infrastructures of roads and clinics. So certain areas can only be reached by plane are boat and that makes a polio vaccination campaign difficult." SUPER CAPTION: Dr. Mashako Mamba, Health Minister, DRC There are still cases of Polio in about 30 countries, and Congo is a top priority with one of the highest rates of polio virus transmission. Despite the success of the vaccination tour, parts of the D-R-C remain out of reach for health workers. So these polio victims at Kinshasa's centre for handicapped will for the time being continue to make prostheses for future polio victims.
