The RUN DMC logo is probably the most recognised hip hop logo whilst The Crisis in the Congo is undoubtedly the least talked about crisis in mainstream news even though it is the deadliest war since WW2. 

With the help of social media and the work of various organisations supporting the Congolese (e.g. Friends Of The Congo, Save The Congo, Raise Hope for Congo, Genocost Congo, Congo Connect and the list goes on) more people are learning and talking about Congo. The RUN DRC pins are a way to raise awareness and engage in dialogue about Congo with people we meet offline.

Pins cost £1.00

Every £1.00 will be donated to Empower Congo Women - a non profit organisation based in eastern Congo. ECW works closely with survivors of the conflict by helping them rebuild their lives. Read more about their projects here.

ECW are currently developing sustainable economic projects with ABFEK, a community-based charity in Mumosho. Learn about ABFEK here

If this is your first time hearing about the conflict, view this video as a starting point and then continue to empower yourself with knowledge about Congo.

For more information and if would like to purchase a pin email: info@designrevolution.co
