From Goma to Kinshasa, its consumption, multiplied by 70 to 80 million inhabitants, is eating into the forest of the Congo Basin, which is vital in the fight against global warming.

Congolese citizens-in-exile follow DRC election from afar

With less than two weeks to go until presidential elections are held in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, thousands of Congolese citizens will not be able to cast their vote. Many have fled the country’s conflict and war in the hope of finding refuge in neighbouring countries.

WHO, UNICEF mobilised against Ebola in the DR Congo

The UN’s World Health Organization (WHO), expresses concern over the spread of the Ebola virus to a city — a development that typically makes it far tougher to fight a contagious disease — after the Democratic Republic of Congo confirmed that a case of Ebola had been recorded in a northwest city. Meanwhile UNICEF remains mobilised in the DRC area where the outbreak originated.

“Geological scandal” is a phrase often used to describe one of the world’s most resource-rich countries – the Democratic Republic of Congo. Despite having extensive deposits of gold, diamonds, tungsten, and uranium, amongst many others, the abundance of internationally valued minerals has failed to bring any kind of prosperity to the country’s people. Colonial exploitation and a bloody civil war have left the Congolese with nothing from their country’s natural riches but misery and poverty.

The Fight Against Ebola (Full Length)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa began in Guinea in December 2013. From there, it quickly spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone. Cases also appeared in Senegal and Nigeria, and there was another outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Today, Liberia is at the center of the epidemic, with more than 3,000 cases of infection. About half of them have been fatal.

As President Barack Obama announced that he would be sending American military personnel to West Africa to help combat the epidemic, VICE News traveled to Monrovia to spend time with those on the front lines of the outbreak.
