Citizens are asking Tim Cook, Apple CEO to help children. What does Tim Cook say?
Apple's policy for addressing human rights abuses: "If year-over-year improvement is not demonstrated by a low-performing supplier, they risk losing our business."
Children can't eat words, so what would help?
Money for food, clothes, shelter and education, which could be raised every time a product is sold containing cobalt from DR Congo. This would need the will of corporates to organise this. This would require a degree of morality.

In reality, children labour 12 hours for as little as 8p. They often earn nothing. They go hungry. They suffer. They die.
