Mr. John Chen, CEO of Blackberry: Will you help these cobalt children, please? Children like Dorsen have helped companies make lots of profit. Dorsen works 12 hours a day for as little as 8p or 10̔¢. This is slave labour and a human rights abuse. Your help would be appreciated. Your company would be lauded.

How to help #Dorsen and children like him
Did you know that people who take action are less likely to suffer from depression?

Donating

When children earn as little as 8p a day, every penny helps

Donate direct to Congo Children Trust who manage the project, Kimbilio. They support street and cobalt children to have a future filled with hope
Buy something from our shop: 100% goes to help Congolese children

Folksy

No help offered from these companies: Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Daimler, Vodafone, Volkswagen, Lenovo. They gave standard "brush-off" responses. Apple claims they lead the industry!

Cobalt Children, 2017. Consumers and Corporates know it's wrong for children to mine cobalt.
