Transforming Injustice into LIFE

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:
  • 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
We take in at least

100

children a week in our nutrition center
In 2020, we have saved approximately

647

people from starvation

This is Blaise. Blaise is 2,5 years old and weighs just under 7 kilograms. Malnutrition causes more than just weight loss. It can also lead to kwashiorkor, a disease resulting from inadequate protein levels that causes visible changes, like swelling of the face, belly and legs, cracked skin, lustreless and discolored hair, as well as damage to internal organs and the brain. Without an early intervention, the brain is robbed of its chance to develop properly, and the child will never fully develop its potential.

When Blaise arrived at Kasisi, blood tests revealed hemoglobin levels half of the norm for a healthy two year-old. Once his condition was stabilized, he was transferred to a feeding center where he will be treated for several weeks. His life is no longer in danger. Blaise is yet another patient from Ntamugenga whose life you saved.

Your donations for our ongoing hunger relief fundraiser go a long way – patients at Ntamugenga know this first hand. It is thanks to your support that the staff in our feeding center has the resources and tools to turn around the world’s worst injustices and to save lives.

Each successive month of the pandemic with its lockdowns and closed borders is difficult for all of us, but for vulnerable residents of the poorest countries it can be a matter of life and death. The economic downturn has led to declining incomes. Those who don’t have work today are bound to see their families go hungry tomorrow.

You can do something to help! One therapeutic meal for a child suffering from malnutrition costs just 15 PLN.

Help us feed a hungry child!
