http://www.euronews.net/ For over a decade, the Democratic Republic of Congo had been ravaged by what many refer to as Africa's first world war. The fighting was concentrated in the east, where entire rural communities were either massacred or became refugees. After years of being kept alive by international aid many are finally returning to what were once their homes and farms. Innovative agricultural methods may hold the key to ending DR Congo's ongoing cycle of poverty.

National Geographic photographer Marcus Bleasdale has spent decades finding beauty in trauma. His recent work in the Congo is featured in the magazine's 125th anniversary issue celebrating its history of photographic excellence. "The Price of Precious" documents child labor in camps that extract not blood diamonds, but tin, tungsten and tantalum -- minerals used in electronic products.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is rich in natural resources, yet the average citizen lives on only 72 cents a day. The foreign mining companies are getting rich while the general population is living in poverty. Many Congolese citizens are diging through the dirt on their hands and knees in search their fair share of the countries natural minerals. While there are taxes on the mining companies who benefit from the countries resources it is proving difficult to actually collect the money that is owed. Vocativ spoke to one tax inspector who explained that tax evasion and government fraud is rampant throughout the mining industry. So it seems that until those benefiting from the countries natural wealth start paying their fare share, many average citizens will have to continue digging t...

How the Democratic Republic of Congo’s booming mining exports are failing to benefit its people. More than $750 million of mining revenues paid by companies to state bodies in the Democratic Republic of Congo was lost to the treasury between 2013 and 2015.

GUNS FOR HIRE -- CONGO DRC is my second documentary about ex-military personel who work for PMCs, private military companies. Reporter Sam Kiley followed Conrad Thorpe who is an ex British Special Forces colonel. He got hired by the Congolese government to train anti-poaching units in the Virunga National Park. They are known as ICCN rangers (Institue Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature). After a decade of civil war this training is a desperate attempt to protect Congo's remaining endangered wildlife. Production Notes: The production of this film offered me the first opportunity to witness the aftermath of the various civil wars in the Eastern part of Congo DRC.
