This is Huruma. We are now fighting for his life. We do not know if we will win this fight. We only took it up thanks to you!
Along with two-month-old Huruma, we are also treating his mother. She was the first to fall into malnutrition. They were both taken to hospital already with symptoms of hunger disease.
There is already a humanitarian crisis in Ntamugenga and the entire region. Lack of water, lack of food, caused by the fact that thousands of residents have no access to their farmlands as a result of the warfare, has made the situation more complicated day by day. No other humanitarian organisations have been able to reach the area for two months. Our hospital is only functioning thanks to you!
At the moment Huruma is on oxygen. We are fighting for him. We know, unfortunately, that he will not be the last. The consequence of war is starvation. Those in need of rescue are growing in number every day. More and more children are also starting to get sick. This is the result of increasingly cold nights and the fact that in our area alone, 15,000 families that were forced to flee, are sleeping in the open air.
Let’s join forces and together march to the rescue of our hospital in Congo!
