Think of Congo today - the fighting is continually under way

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 is one of the most important conversations I have had in recent times. Sister Ania Nowakowska and all the hospital staff are standing fast in the rebel besieged Ntamugenga. Extraordinary people who are displaying the highest heroism. They know that if they were to leave, the hope of hundreds of hospital patients and thousands of refugees from surrounding villages, who now only feel safe within the walls of the Good Factory-supported facility, will be extinguished. We talk for less than a quarter of an hour. In the background we hear gunshots and explosions. A stray bullet flies through the ceiling of one of the rooms in the hospital. We don’t know what the next few hours will bring, or how long our hospital will be a safe haven for the terrified people of North Kivu. We believe that evil will not be allowed to enter where we have been producing good over the past years.

Think of Congo today. Think of our hospital, all its staff, patients and, last but not least, of the missionaries who are constantly on standby. Pray for them and support them any way you possibly can.

Urgent Help Needed

Save the Pharmacy for the Poorest in Togo

This amount will allow for equipping pharmacy shelves for the first half of the year. Ania and Mateusz will take care of this, and they will fly to Togo in February and fill the shelves with the most essential antibiotics, antimalarial drugs, and pain relievers. The Saoudé Pharmacy has people to save. It cannot succeed without your support.
