Food for the Democratic Republic of Congo
ERDO is providing food to people in the DRC who are suffering through hunger, conflict and illness.
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is facing one of the world’s largest hunger crisis. The number of severely hungry people went from 13 million in 2019 to 27 million today. The DRC needs immediate assistance today to save lives. The country has faced active conflict for the last 25 years. This year alone, over a hundred people have died due to violence between multiple militia groups.
ERDO is working with the local Pentecostal church denomination in the DRC. Together, we are responding to people’s critical hunger needs with seven months of emergency food supplies, delivered to 1,430 families in the area. Thanks to a grant by the Government of Canada through Canadian Foodgrains Bank, your donation will be matched 4:1.
Emergency food supplies contain staple local food items. Following the World Food Programme’s food regulation requirements, this food will meet a family’s minimum dietary needs. Thank you for your gift of any amount today to feed children and families.
