Help Jamye Document Fact-Finding Tour of East Congo
By Jamye Wooten
(BALTIMORE - October 27, 2012) - I will be traveling to the Democratic Republic of Congo on a delegation with African-American Clergy and faith leaders. I will be documenting our meeting with Congolese Ecumenical leaders, the President of Congo, and our fact-finding tour of East Congo.
Your contributions will go a long way to ensure that this once in a lifetime opportunity is documented. The final project will be shared with churches and community organizations throughout the United States.
- Nearly six million people have died as a result of conflict and conflict related causes in the Congo since 1996. Forty-five thousand continue to die each month.
- Hundreds of thousands of women have been raped as weapon of war
- Eighty percent of the population lives on 30 cents or less per day
Help us tell the story of the Congolese!
