The Child is washed before being placed in the coffin at the burial of the eight month old child of an artisanal goldminer in Mungwalu North Eastern Congo. The child died of anaemia brought on by Malaria. Most of the miners are combatants who have controlled mineral rich areas and are profiting from their exploitation. Most of the Gold mined in this region leaves DRC illegally and is sent to Uganda. Illness and disease are rife, malaria being the biggest killer no aid workers are based in this region and no medical aid is available as it is thought to be too dangerous to work, two UN soldiers were killed and dismembered here last year.
