The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is one of the world’s worst places to be a child. According to UNICEF, one of every seven children dies before their fifth birthday. Over a decade of conflict has driven more than a million people, mostly children, from their homes and into crowded tent cities. Please help women and children in the DRC with a gift that doubles in impact.
Your help is urgently needed in this suffering country, where 80 percent of the people survive on less than $2 per day.
When combined with grant funds, your gift today will double to provide life-saving food, agricultural support, healthcare, and more for suffering children and families. You’ll give hungry women and children the food they need to survive – vitamin-rich beans, maize, and other nutritious grains and vegetables. Plus, you’ll help feed them for years to come by providing vegetable seeds, farming tools, and training to grow abundant crops. You’ll also provide healthcare to protect children from deadly diseases, and ensure they can grow up strong and full of life.
So many women and children in the DRC have endured years of violence and unimaginable suffering. With God’s help, we can answer their cries and give them hope for the future. Please send a gift that will go 2X as far today.
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
