This is what the little Safari looks like today!!!

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.

Overview:
  • 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

Although we have been focusing on humanitarian aid for Ukraine, we have not forgotten about those in our care in 10 countries, mainly in Africa, where we have been running aid projects for years. It is because of the war in Ukraine that they will soon need us even more.

The FAO Global Food Price Index has reached its highest level ever. 18 countries, mainly in Africa, import at least 50% of their wheat from Ukraine or Russia. Among them are countries where we have long been fighting hunger: Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Lebanon. The war in Ukraine is bringing tragic implications for these countries.

“We must do everything in our power to avoid a major hunger crisis,” Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary-General, said yesterday.

Do you want to see for yourselves what wonders we do thanks to you in the Democratic Republic of Congo? Have a look at how little Safari has changed! We told you the story of the fight for his life here in mid-February.

We admitted him to hospital in Ntamugenga on the brink of life and death. For several days we brought the boy’s starved body back up to strength, giving him therapeutic meals, F-100 milk and organising all the paperwork to get him to neighbouring Rwanda for treatment as soon as possible. This is what little Safari looks like today!!!

The war in Ukraine will shake economies around the world and put Africa’s poorest countries on the brink of humanitarian disaster. We are already preparing our response for the worst possible outcome, with plans to develop agricultural projects and launch more nutrition centres in the most vulnerable places.

You can do this good work with us!!! Visit GoodWorks 24/7 and donate a therapeutic meal for a child with hunger disease! If we don’t help these kids, no one will!
