Congo chaos 5

Congo chaos 5

Villagers in Kahunga tap water from a well. Villagers here, located at the border of the Virunga National Park, are mostly farmers. They are not allowed to farm inside the park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Congolese government, however, has given approval to British oil company SOCO to explore inside the park. Oil companies believe there are large stores of oil beneath Virunga.
