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 baby was born amid the swish of bullets and earth-shaking explosions.

Joseline and her mum are among the victims of the fighting that swept through the Ntamugenga area in the Democratic Republic of Congo more than three months ago. It is hard to imagine what her mum felt as she and her newborn had to flee to yet another unknown location amid explosions and gunfire. Survival was at stake. Anything to eat and a shelter that would not collapse on her head was sought.

The stress was so great that she stopped producing milk and could not feed her daughter. Substitute milk, under wartime conditions, was unaffordable.

At the last minute, they found their way to the nutrition centre in Ntamugenga, which, although located on the battle line between the army and the rebels, continues to function and save more children’s lives.

Today, the worst is behind them, but Joseline still requires many months of nutritional therapy. You know us and you know that we won’t just stop at feeding the girl – we want both the child and the mother to receive comprehensive care – full nutritional therapy, but also education on nutrition and growing vegetables.

Pinwheel for Life is a form of comprehensive support for a child who is at risk of hunger disease and its consequences. It’s a new opportunity for children like Joseline who can’t make it on their own.

Many of us start the year with resolutions – today we want to ask you to make saving one little life among them. Spin the Pinwheel for Joseline’s Life with us!
