There are words that should not go together

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

There are words that should not go together. Children of war. Children fleeing from bombardment. Children going hungry.

Only a mountain range separates our nutrition centre and hospital in Ntamugenga from the war. Not far from this chaos there is one-week-old Abigail, a baby of just one kilogram brought here by her mother. We didn’t know if she would survive.

The warm nest you have provided has already saved more than one such baby, and therapeutic milk is a staple of child nutrition when mothers under stress and hunger lose the ability to produce their own food.

We have no control over the course of the conflict and the the underlying violence, but we can feed and heal those who dream today of a meal and a night without fever. If you want to put your goodwill to use, today you can still donate a cup of therapeutic drink, malaria medication or a meal for a mother fleeing war who is feeding her young child.

Abigail, thanks to your tremendous support, has already gained weight and, most importantly, her mother has regained her breast milk.

Thanks to you, we can dream of soon being able to write these words next to each other: safe children.

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.
