On Giving Tuesday, Your gift makes 5X the Impact!
Will you help feed mothers and children suffering from desperate hunger this Christmas?
Kabuo Nzanzu lives in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in a village called Maabwe. She is a mother to six beautiful children. As a farmer, she grows potatoes and vegetables for food and to make a living. But recently, crop disease and inflation have meant there isn’t enough food to go around. Her children are hungry. She often skips meals just to feed them.
The situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo is URGENT
Hunger is pervasive in the DR Congo. Many families are able to eat only one meal a day. Children work alongside their parents to make ends meet. Hunger exhausts them. Their growth is stunted by severe malnourishment. Families live in the midst of intense violence. There are over 120 militia groups in the Eastern DRC. More than one million people have fled the fighting linked to the resurgence of the M23 in North Kivu. Those who stay are constantly on guard.
Following Jesus where the need is greatest – we are there. Working with the Baptist Church of Central Africa to bring help families grow more food and bring light of Christ to this difficult region. Will you help us?
