The body of Sakura Lisi, an eight-month-old daughter of an artisan gold miner, is washed in preparation for the burial in Mongbwalu, Ituri District, Democratic Republic of Congo, DRC, in October 2004. She died of anemia brought on by malaria. Most of the artisan miners are combatants, who control these mineral-rich areas and profit from its exploitation. The majority of the gold mined in this region leaves the DRC illegally and is sent to Uganda. Illness and disease are rife with malaria being the biggest killer.
