Laws to protect children and workers in DR Congo are not enforced. Children and unofficial workers mine cobalt for smartphones in slave conditions. Corporates know about this. It is well documented and yet it still happens. Corporates and consumers must take responsibility. At this moment, children are suffering. If you have a smartphone, the cobalt inside it may have been mined by a child. Do you want to help a child in the DR Congo? Even £1 will help. Dorsen, who is 8, works 12 hours for as little as 8p or 10¢. With support, he could go to school and have at least one meal a day like the children below.
