feature story - CONGO STORIES: Battling Five Centuries of Exploitation and Greed

december 4th, 2018

The new book "CONGO STORIES: Battling Five Centuries of Exploitation and Greed," co-authored by Enough Project Founding Director John Prendergast and Congolese activist Fidel Bafilemba, featuring photographs by Ryan Gosling, arrives at a critical moment. The Democratic Republic of Congo, which has suffered the deadliest war since World War II, faces a crucial month with hotly contested elections scheduled two days before Christmas.

The authors are donating 100 percent of their proceeds to create a Congo Stories Upstander Fund, which will provide support to many of the Congolese heroes profiled in the book in their efforts to create a better future for Congo.
