Residents are slowly returning to Ntamugenga

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

Today, some captured moments from the mission of the Sisters of the Angels in the Democratic Republic of Congo. These are moments that show that even when the frontlines of the heaviest battles and bomb blasts of the highest calibre sweep through our lives, one must go on living.

Residents are slowly returning to Ntamugenga. Among them, the nurses who will now replace the two who were on duty during the most difficult times. They have gone to rest, to take stock of the losses in their homes. They had not had time to do this so far.

Sister Agnieszka, together with the family of the girl who died in the shelling of the mission, visited the little one’s grave for the first time. Together they planted flowers on it.

Our hospital operates as one of the few in the area. We feel an even greater responsibility to be there for the people who are left with nothing. If we don’t help those affected, no one will. Our village is still under rebel occupation. Evacuation is still out of the question. The road to the capital Goma is still cut off. The hospital is using the supplies it fortunately, thanks to you, accumulated before the war.

You don’t even realise how much you are boosting this community’s morale. They know that they are surviving this because of you, that thanks to the sisters they have not been left alone, that the world has not forgotten them in these difficult times.

Our fundraiser for Ntamugenga’s rescue is underway. It’s worth contributing to it, because it’s not just about achieving its financial goal. It’s about the people who only have us and the chance we have to do something good for them amidst all the evil that surrounds them.
