Congolese hip-hop artist Didjak Munya has been working with War Child to help engage young people and take our message to a wider audience.

This is a track he wrote with some of the children we work with - it's about the need for the new child protection laws in Congo.

Lyrics:
TITLE: CODE OF LAW

Rap:
For all the Children of Congo
For all the Children of Africa
For all Children of the World
To the right of the Child
Policy makers and parents

Verse 1:
I'm tired of being flogged every day
I'm tired of being called every day "witch"
I am tired of going to sleep hungry every day
I'm tired of being called "child without hope"
I'm tired of sleeping outside in the cold
I'm tired of doing work that is not my age
I'm tired, I'm tired, I'm tired, I'm tired

Verse 2:
We are tired of living in pain and difficulties
We too are children like any other
We also want to live like other
Why does Africa lack the means?
Night and day, always suffering and difficulties
Children
They are beginning to treat us as objects without value

Rap:
There's enough of all these atrocities

Chorus:
The new code of law for our rights, protection and child development

Verse 3:
The new code for our rights, protection of the Child Development we really want
I'm tired of living with the suffering and pain
I'm tired of being whipped like a dog
I'm tired of having tears in every eye
I'm tired of being thrown in the street every time
I'm tired of being an instrument for sex
I'm tired of being treated all the time like a witch
I'm tired of being pushed all the time begging
I'm tired of living nightmares that are not my age
I'm tired, pissed off, pissed off, pissed off

Verse 4:
I want to go to school like other children
I want to sleep in a house and not outside
I want to be with my parents
I do not want to be a street child
I want to have a very good education
I want the government to protect our rights
I want I want I want I want

Chorus:
The new code of law for our rights, protection and child development (repeat 4 times)

Rap:
The new code of law should apply and all adults must be involved
What is bif, what's bif (bif = slang meaning problem)
What is the pale, what's pale
For our rights, we must explain
More about being pushed into prostitution
More about being pushed to hard labor
More about being pushed into begging
Ahiiii ok


Rap:
Didjak Munya, the NGO War Child
More folds, the Future of Children folds
