Therapy for malnourished Charmante continues

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.

  • 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 2023, we have saved approximately


people from starvation
We take in at least


children a week in our nutrition center


As long as, apart from the gunshots, you hear a bomb falling, it means you are alive.

Everything else is uncertain. You do not know whether you will be able to go to work on Monday. Whether there will be any work at all for you. You don’t know if you’ll be able to eat lunch tomorrow, because your wallet is empty, and you don’t see any possibility of earning a few pennies today either. You can’t call your home a home, because you don’t want to get attached to it. The rebels who occupy the area can destroy it at any time.

Tomorrow is not certain. Tonight is not either. And in September? You don’t know if your child will go to school. Will there even be a September?

For Charmante’s father, living in the Congo, high under the volcanoes, in a village four hours’ walk from our Ntamugenga, only one thing is certain. It seemed that his one-year-old daughter would not survive, would die of hunger disease, and that he would lose her too. Thanks to you, today she knows that the little one will survive. A team of specialists from the nutrition centre in Ntamugenga saved the little one.

Although the little one is no longer in danger of dying of starvation, she still needs your support to return to full strength. Therapy for the malnourished child is in progress. The effects of long-term hunger cannot be cured overnight.

By committing today to donate for Charmante’s treatment, you can not only restore her childhood, but make it the one certainty for her loved ones, all across the uncertain Congolese world, that the girl will recover.
