We are fighting for Haruma's 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:
  • 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

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!

Urgent Help Needed

Save the Pharmacy for the Poorest in Togo

This amount will allow for equipping pharmacy shelves for the first half of the year. Ania and Mateusz will take care of this, and they will fly to Togo in February and fill the shelves with the most essential antibiotics, antimalarial drugs, and pain relievers. The Saoudé Pharmacy has people to save. It cannot succeed without your support.
