Look how much Justine has changed!

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.

Overview:
  • 15,6 million people – 18% of the population suffer from hunger
  • 3,4 million children under 5 years are acutely malnourished
  • 41,8% million children under 5 years are stunted
  • 63,2% of children below 5 years of age and 41% of women  15-49 years are anemic
In 2021, we have saved approximately

550

people from starvation
We take in at least

Justine is two years old and has a twin sister. She’s always been weaker than her sister but her real issues began a month ago when her undernourished body was attacked by a severe bout of malaria. She was so sick when she came here we feared for her life. The picture you see was taken upon her arrival. Today, while putting a smile on her face can be a challenge sometimes, she is safe and growing stronger by the day. Just look how much she’s changed!

In a vulnerable community, when a child becomes sick with life-threatening diseases, parents are confronted with their worst nightmare the moment they realize they can’t afford to treat their child. Many of our patients don’t have the means to eat twice a day, let alone pay for medicine or costly medical procedures. An alarmingly large portion of the Congolese population is affected by extreme hunger and poverty. You, our dear supporters, are their last hope.

You can get a meal for a malnourished child for just 15 PLN. Just click to go to GoodWorks24 and feed a hungry belly now.
