Benoît had his first restful night's sleep in years

Democratic Republic of Congo

The second largest country of Africa, full of paradoxes. On one hand, it is rich in natural resources (including cobalt, copper, coltan, crude oil, diamonds, gold); on the other hand, its inhabitants are among the poorest in the world. For decades, the DRC has been suffering from prolonged conflicts that have led to one of the most severe humanitarian crises in the world.

  • 77% of the population live in extreme poverty for less than $1.90 a day
  • 16% of the country’s population, i.e. over 13 million people, require immediate humanitarian assistance
  • 13,6 million people are deprived of access to safe water sources and proper sanitary and hygienic facilities
  • numerous outbreaks of deadly diseases, including measles, malaria, cholera and Ebola
  • about 10% of all malaria deaths in sub-Saharan Africa occurred here

“What a relief, what a relief, my headache is gone!” Benoît kept repeating just a few hours after the treatment. So far he had not been able to sleep a single night without pain.

Looking at the 563 therapeutic meals you donated last week for the kids, or the 34 IVs for the hospital in Congo, we want to remind you that you stand behind every story of health restored, hunger disease cured or surgery successfully completed. Most recently, you saved Benoît from immense pain.

The glaucoma could no longer be controlled with medication or minor treatments and the decision was made to simply remove the eye. Do you think the boy was devastated? No! He’s a real champion with a tremendous will to fight. We took him to Dr Pieta’s clinic in Rwanda – the best clinic in Central Africa. It was here that, thanks to you, 18 patients underwent ophthalmological treatment. Among them was Benoît, whom you simply gave a new life – one in which, instead of suffering, he can simply go to school, play with his peers and help his parents.

The next stage is fitting a prosthetic eye – follow us so you don’t miss Ben’s new photos!
