The Democratic Repulic of Congo, formerly Zaire, is in central Africa just straddling the equator. Our projects are helping the people of the far out villages around Kananga in the South.
People in the Congo have been dying at a rate
per month, and the death toll is largely due to widespread disease
and famine; reports indicate that almost half of the individuals who
have died are children under the age of 5.
