Another improvement for Huruma

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

We have good news – Huruma has started suckling, which is another improvement! The boy has an appetite and as soon as we get rid of the cough (he caught an infection), he will definitely start to gain weight quickly. So far we’ve been keeping him warm in the infant warmer you funded, but now that the sun is slowly coming out from behind the clouds, we’re taking him out for short walks.

As for the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo itself – the local Red Cross, supported by Unicef, came to visit Ntamugenga. They delivered malaria drugs, basic antipyretics and a small amount of therapeutic food for the children, which gave us some relief! You, on the other hand, continue to be the only source of food aid for adults and older children, as it is only thanks to your donations that the staff at the nutrition centre can shop for and distribute meals to those most in need. Huruma’s mother is among them. Many thanks to all 134 people who donated meals to single mums in Congo. This is now truly a priority need!

If you would like to donate PLN 7 to this cause, take a look at GoodWorks 24/7. This wonderful place only exists thanks to you!

Speech therapy for Gisele

Gisele's mother has not been able to find the reason why Gisele does not speak and experiences seizures during which she falls, becomes rigid and cries. Lack of money for diagnostics meant that she could only wait for the seizures to pass. We could not accept such powerlessness.
