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:
  • only 9.3% of the population have access to the acceptable minimum level of food every day
  • about 7.7 million people are coping with a serious lack of food safety
  • more than 4.6 million children suffer from malnutrition, including 2.2 million from serious, acute malnutrition
  • 47% of children below 5 years of age and 38% of women suffer from anemia

Become one of those who invest in life. Together we can save children from hunger disease!

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, every week, we help about 220 children suffering from diagnosed malnutrition or hunger disease. Last year, we saved 407 children with acute malnutrition and 891 children with moderate malnutrition. Our center is the only such effective institution of this kind in the entire province of Northern Kivu.

The number of kids suffering from acute malnutrition who come to our center keeps increasing. This is due to the very difficult situation in the region. It is on the verge of an armed conflict. The ones who take advantage of it are local bandits and rebels. The ones who suffer are the poorest, innocent inhabitants.

When the children eat, we teach their parents to cultivate plants in our hospital garden. They also get familiar with the basic principles of nutrition. In this way, we hope to prevent further cases of malnutrition among children. The center is supervised by two qualified employees, a cook and a nutrition specialist. As our hospital is located nearby, the mothers staying at the center with their children undergo medical checks.

After the end of treatment, our nurses regularly visit their patients at home. The visits are unexpected and their aim is to check whether the guardians have been following the recommendations of the nutrition center. We check whether the parents trained at the hospital garden have established small home gardens of their own to enrich the diet of their family. The nurses also check whether the food rations received from the nutrition center are really given to children that have just recovered. They weigh and examine the children, telling their parents and guardians that they would be back with another unexpected visit.
