Muzuri received a special gift from you for this year's Father's Day

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

This Thursday, many of us will be kissing our dads and wishing them a very happy Father’s Day. We want to remind you of those real Super Dads, whose often superhuman efforts and commitment to taking care of their families have earned them our special admiration.

Muzuri from the Democratic Republic of Congo will probably never hear any wishes from his children on Father’s Day (it’s simply not celebrated here), but his greatest wish has already been granted – recently, thanks to your support, his baby boy was born.

Great joy was met with great fear for tomorrow, as the army entered the village of Muzuri. A rebel offensive is under way in North Kivu. The inhabitants are leaving their homes in fear for their lives. All Muzuri had until now were two healthy hands and a piece of farmland. Now there is nowhere to work.

Muzuri, having fled with his family to safer areas, had to put everything on the line and start life anew. The family found refuge in a school in Rugabo. “There was a regular shortage of food, the children were sick and the school sheltering us had to kick us out during the day to hold classes. We suffered a lot.” Muzuri says, cradling a baby in his arms. He speaks quietly, as if he does not want to be overheard by his son, who has not yet experienced anything bad in his life.

It is thanks to your support that the family, in addition to food and medical care, has been given a fresh start. You gave Muzuri a modest flat, which will allow him to provide for the family’s most basic needs. He is not worried about work – he knows that as long as he is healthy and has his hands ready to work, he will be able to provide for his family. This is a real chain of good, the first link of which, as in every such story, is you.

At GoodWorks 24/7, you will find a gift card that always makes a GOOD gift – also for this year’s Father’s Day. The recipient can choose whether he would like to give a goat, malaria medication or gardening tools to another father on the other side of the world. If you haven’t prepared a gift yet, we strongly encourage you to have a look in our shop!
