    The Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa is one of the world’s most resource-rich countries. A wide range of rare minerals can be found here in abundance, all commanding high prices in world commodity markets. Diamonds for jewellery, tantalum, tungsten and gold for electronics; uranium used in power generation and weaponry and many others.

    After finally receiving my scooter in Franceville, Gabon I made the trip towards the Congo. But again, it wasn't without any lack of drama. I had two flat tires before I even made it to the border. I was planning on hitting the sand road of the Congo by about 8am, but with the flats, and the fact I was in the middle of nowhere, I didn't hit the sand until about 1030. The sand road in the Congo was absolutely grueling. There were so many times driving the road towards Oyo that I just about quit and set up at the side of the road to sleep for the night. Following the sand day I crashed at the house of a Lebanese expat for the night and pushed on to Brazzaville. Two days later, and I arrive at the outskirts of Brazzaville, Congo. But my visa expires today, so what will I do? Stay tuned....

Today, Goma is the gateway to the recently re-opened world heritage-listed Virunga National Park, and (still) hosts the world's largest UN peacekeeping mission. While enduring one of the most complex and protracted armed conflicts in history, the city was devastated in 2002 by the eruption of nearby Nyiragongo volcano. As shown in the video, residents are still breaking up the dried lava flows and using the rocks to build walls and houses. Shot on an iPhone 6.

  • The Airport in Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo - A Welthungerhilfe-Project

    Goma is the biggest city in Easter Congo – with a population of half a million. The Goma airport is located in the middle of town. In January 2002 the volcano Niyragongo erupted and buried large parts of the city and the airport under massive layers of lava. Although parts of the runway cannot be used anymore, the pilots keep using it to take off and land planes. The location of the Goma airport makes the situation for the residents particularly dangerous. In 2008 a plane shot over the end of the runway into the city and killed 47 people – most of the dead were visitors to the local market. The reconstruction of the runway started not till seven years after the volcanic eruption.

According to Ida Sawyer from Human Rights Watch, the army commanders responsible for these horrific abuses are not brought to justice; instead they are often "rewarded and given positions of power and wealth". Efforts are being made to address this state of impunity; those in charge "must be pursued on a criminal level for these serious crimes", says the Military Prosecutor of North Kivu. But with the judicial system mostly fractured and forgotten, the only ones bearing the consequences are the victims. Their faith in the country has plummeted; as one victim says, "our army has looted and raped their own people. Our life in Congo has no meaning".

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is the 2nd largest country in Africa and 11th largest in the world. At 2,344,858 square kilometers, the DRC covers a land area larger than the combined territories of Spain, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Lithuania. 2. With a population of over 80 million, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the 4th most-populated nation in Africa and the 18th most populated country in the world. The people represent over 200 ethnic groups, with nearly 250 languages and dialects spoken throughout the country. Kinshasa, the capital, is the largest French-speaking city in the world. 3. Despite being a poor and conflict-ridden country, the DRC boasts a space program. Privately financed by the Développement Tous Azimuts (DTA), with significant government support, the Troposphere rockets are expected to send cargo to outer space in the near future. 4. Kinshasa and Brazzaville in the next-door Republic of Congo are the closest capital cities in the world (with the exception of Vatican City and Rome). A bridge across the Congo River still needs to be constructed to connect the two political centers. 5. The great apes, such as the bonobos and the eastern lowland gorillas, can be found only in Congo. Along with the common chimpanzee, the bonobo is the closest extant relative to humans. 6. The DRC used to have a very strange form of currency, called the Katanga cross. The metal is made of copper and is shaped in the form of an X. The Katanga cross underwent a change of value from being owned by tribal chiefs, who used them for large transactions or rituals, to a more widespread use for purchasing perishable goods, although its main use was to bind marriages. 7. The DRC is among the most resource-rich countries on the planet, yet it continues to have an extremely poor population. Tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold have been dubbed “conflict minerals.” Armed groups use the profits from sales for campaigns of violence.

The Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa is one of the world’s most resource-rich countries. A wide range of rare minerals can be found here in abundance, all commanding high prices in world commodity markets. Diamonds for jewellery, tantalum, tungsten and gold for electronics; uranium used in power generation and weaponry and many others. Congo has copious deposits of raw materials that are in high demand internationally but remains one of the poorest countries in the world. From colonisation, with the horrors of slavery and other atrocities, to a turbulent and equally brutal present in which militant groups control the mines, Congo’s richness in natural resources has brought nothing but misery. Referred to as “conflict minerals”, these riches leave only a trail of death, destruction and poverty. Under Belgian rule, Congolese labourers were often required to meet quotas when mining different minerals. Failure could mean punishment by having a hand cut off with a machete. The country gained independence in 1960, but that didn’t put a stop to slave and child labour or to crimes being committed to extract and exploit the minerals. Warring militant fractions from inside the country and beyond seized control of mines for their own benefit while terrorising local populations. For our translator, Bernard Kalume Buleri, his country’s history of turmoil is very personal; like most Congolese people, he and his family fell victim to the unending mineral based power struggle. Born in the year of his country’s independence, he has lived through war and seen his homeland torn apart by violent looting and greed. His story is a damning testament, illustrating how nature’s bounty, instead of being a blessing, becomes a deadly curse.

The Republic of Congo, or Congo-Brazzaville, is a different country from the Democratic Republic of Congo, its neighbour. Congo still retains vast rainforests that house some of the most iconic animals that we know of, such as gorillas, chimpanzees and elephants.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. There are two Congos: Democratic Republic of the Congo, the old Zaire (DRC or Congo-Kinshasa), formerly a Belgian colony, and Republic of the Congo (Congo-Brazzaville), formerly a French colony. Both gained independence in 1960. 2. The People's Republic of the Congo was a Marxist–Leninist one-party state from 1969 to 1992. Multi-party elections have been held since 1992, although a democratically elected government was ousted in the 1997. 3. The Parc National Nouabalé-Ndoki is truly the world before the chainsaw. This vast region of swampy forest is home to healthy populations of western lowland gorillas, forest elephants, chimpanzees and others. In 2012 Unesco declared it a World Heritage Site. 4. Brazzaville is the capital and largest city of the Republic of the Congo. The populous city of Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, lies across the Congo River from Brazzaville. During the Nazi occupation of France during World War II, Brazzaville functioned as the symbolic capital of Free France between 1940 and 1943. 5. The Republic of the Congo's sparse population is concentrated in the southwestern portion of the country, leaving the vast areas of tropical jungle in the north virtually uninhabited. Thus, Congo is one of the most urbanized countries in Africa, with 70% of its total population living in a few urban areas. 6. The Congo Basin rainforest is the world’s second largest rainforest, spanning Congo and 6 other countries! A population on the order of 125,000 western lowland gorillas, whose isolation from humans has been largely preserved by inhospitable swamps. 7. The political stability and development of hydrocarbon production made the Republic of the Congo the fourth largest oil producer in the Gulf of Guinea, providing the country with relative prosperity. The oil sector accounted for 65% of the GDP, 85% of government revenue, and 92% of exports.

In which John Green teaches you about the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which used to be Zaire, which used to be The Belgian Congo, which used to be the Congo Free State, which used to be the region surrounding the Congo River Basin in central Africa. So the history of this place is a little convoluted. The history of Congo is central to the history of central Africa, and the Congo Wars embroiled neighboring countries like Uganda and Rwanda. John will talk you through the history of Congo and the region.

After finally receiving my scooter in Franceville, Gabon I made the trip towards the Congo. But again, it wasn't without any lack of drama. I had two flat tires before I even made it to the border. I was planning on hitting the sand road of the Congo by about 8am, but with the flats, and the fact I was in the middle of nowhere, I didn't hit the sand until about 1030. The sand road in the Congo was absolutely grueling. There were so many times driving the road towards Oyo that I just about quit and set up at the side of the road to sleep for the night. Following the sand day I crashed at the house of a Lebanese expat for the night and pushed on to Brazzaville. Two days later, and I arrive at the outskirts of Brazzaville, Congo. But my visa expires today, so what will I do? Stay tuned. For travel articles and photography visit my blog http://www.brendansadventures.com and my travel magazine http://www.vagabundomagazine.com

The front lines of the conflict in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo shift frequently and innocent civilians are often caught up in the violence. Fatuma Kapuweli is one of the more than 370,000 Congolese forced to flee in North Kivu province since January. Hers is a daily struggle to keep her children fed and out of danger.

Follow me on Instagram: http://instagram.com/paul_cbr The sights and sounds of Goma in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, during my trip there in June 2015. Today, Goma is the gateway to the recently re-opened world heritage-listed Virunga National Park, and (still) hosts the world's largest UN peacekeeping mission. While enduring one of the most complex and protracted armed conflicts in history, the city was devastated in 2002 by the eruption of nearby Nyiragongo volcano. As shown in the video, residents are still breaking up the dried lava flows and using the rocks to build walls and houses. Shot on an iPhone 6.

Goma is the biggest city in Easter Congo – with a population of half a million. The Goma airport is located in the middle of town. In January 2002 the volcano Niyragongo erupted and buried large parts of the city and the airport under massive layers of lava. Although parts of the runway cannot be used anymore, the pilots keep using it to take off and land planes. The location of the Goma airport makes the situation for the residents particularly dangerous. In 2008 a plane shot over the end of the runway into the city and killed 47 people – most of the dead were visitors to the local market. The reconstruction of the runway started not till seven years after the volcanic eruption. The Department for Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany financed the construction work, while the Welthungerhilfe conducted it on-site. It was a long and difficult process until the project could be finalized. The construction work was disrupted by disputes between the regular army and the M23-Militia in 2012. The first step towards the reconstruction of the Goma airport was finally completed in February 2015. Prospective developments are the entire asphalt coating, an extension and the professional illumination of the runway. In future the people in Goma will profit from more security, a connection to the international air traffic and economic development.
