Carey Mulligan Forms Deep Connection to Child of War in Democratic Republic of Congo

Carey Mulligan holds an adorable baby in a feature for Vogue magazine’s February 2015 issue, which features Dakota Johnson on the cover!

In the feature, the 29-year-old actress discussed her recent trip through the war-ravaged Democratic Republic of Congo and the inspiring children she met along the way.

“Abandoned half-built buildings, abandoned half-destroyed buildings, and slums form the bulk of the cityscape of Goma, on the border with Rwanda. Nothing works. Corruption, power outages, and impassable roads—and the palpable threat of chaos—are part of daily life. One in ten children born today in the DRC won’t live to see a fifth birthday. Since the outbreak of fighting in 1998, 5.4 million people have died there,” Carey shared.

She added, “For children who live with trauma, fear, and grief amidst wars they should have no part of, War Child is there to give them comfort, tell them they are not alone, remind them that there are people around the world who care about them and will do everything they can to keep them safe.​”

    And let’s not forget there is NO birth control, this is the main reason for a child won’t live to see the 5th birthday. And remember the strong gender discrimination which doesn’t allow women to learn, there are child brides, and the severe every day violance against women, children…for the same reason.
