In RE today, first, I want you to look at the picture and answer the questions that are written on it.
Then, read the piece of text below:
The boy in the picture lives in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), a vast country in the centre of Africa. In his hand is a small piece of gold. Lots of people see gold as a symbol of wealth and power. It is used in everything from jewellery to food and aircraft engines to computers.
But gold has done little to reduce poverty in developing countries and is often linked to fighting. Gold mining can harm the environment and cause lots of problems for people living near mines. Sometimes the deadly chemicals that are used to get the gold out of the rock, gets into the water supply and people get very sick.
Children often work in the mines. A teacher from a mining area explains how this affects them: “The Government has not paid teachers here for years. So I just get $30 a month out of the school fees paid by parents. The school is for six to twelve year olds. It costs the parents one dollar per child, per month. Many children leave school and start mining because they can’t afford the fees. Some of them even mine after school. Each year we have lots of children at the beginning but after a while, fewer and fewer come. The parents all want to educate their children but they are helpless.”
Isaiah 1:17 - Learn to do good;see that justice is done,
help those who are oppressed,
give orphans their rights and defend widows.
