Let us do everything to ensure that death does not win again

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
In 2023, we have saved approximately

550

people from starvation
We take in at least

80

children a week in our nutrition center

On Good Friday, we learn to experience death. Exhausted by prolonged starvation, little Gentille’s body had just given up. We did everything we could. This time it was not enough.

We are not the masters of life and death, although our little charges in Congo are resurrected before our eyes every day. It is their resurrection that we strongly believe in. We fight for them with all our strength. There is no other rescue for them within a radius of a few dozen kilometres. The miracle of the transition from near-death to full strength, to regained childhood, to life, is happening because of our excellent team at the Ntamugenga Nutrition Centre and you who support it.

We have lost Gentille. Over the last few days, we have become her closest family. Her death has dealt us a great blow. Please send some good thoughts and prayers today to her family and staff who fought until the end.

Let us do all we can to ensure that death does not win again. Let us fight for the miracle of resurrection for more little patients.
