Quotes of the Day

"We can not give you exactly the number of lives that are lost each day following the cessation of artisanal mining in the DRC and yet even if a child died or who is hungry or do not go to school because his father digger lacked money, this is a tragedy, it is a sad news that should challenge our humanity."
                               --Serge Mulumba, President of the CDMC, a mining cooperative that oversees and assists artisanal mining in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

“There are always unintended consequences to such sweeping but necessary changes... . Most of us, if not all, could foresee that this would be both challenging and bumpy. We are too far down the road to go back.”
                              --Joanne Lebert, director of Partnership Africa Canada's Great Lakes Program
