The Belgian NGO IPIS has done a lot of work on mapping mines & resources
linked with conflicts, in DRC in particular.
I think they are interested by OSM (Alexandre was at the HOT summit in
Brussels) but I'm not sure how much they're using OSM already.
If you'd like I'd be happy to connect you. But since it's you asking,
I'm wondering if they're not the organization you're referring to
