Pygmies in the Congo

The Congo has the chance to be the home of between 15 000 to 30 000 Pygmies. Unfortunately, their situation is all but fun : BBC News - Pygmies' struggle. “They cannot afford the hunting and fishing permits sometimes required by the local authority.” “Because Pygmies have never taken part in any census they are not allowed to own land.” “This Pygmy community is poor and has no access to education and health care. The infant mortality rate is over 30% in the villages of this area and most parents cannot buy medicine. ”
