Giving Tuesday Appeal

Help Feed Hungry Families

On Giving Tuesday, your gift makes 5X the impact!

The situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo is URGENT

The DR Congo remains one of the poorest countries in the world. Hunger is pervasive. 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. 

To add to the plight are the rebels–who torment the lives of ordinary families. 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. Through saving groups and training in conservation agriculture, you can help families slowly taking step out of extreme poverty.

“I used to go and work in the fields every day but all I could get was barely enough to eat. But since I took part in the program by the local church I have been able to buy a sewing machine. Now, thanks to working as a seamstress I earch enough money to save.

At the end of this year, I plan to buy a goat with my savings. In the future, I plan to expand my goat breeding and, after that, I will buy a plot of land where I will live with my family.” 

“I ask God to bless the people who started this program, because it helps us a lot.” 

– Masika, DRC
