The Democratic Republic of Congo is a country with complex needs where we work with some of the world’s most vulnerable children. But we also work in more stable areas of the country where we are able to implement child sponsorship programs.
World Vision child sponsorship starts by looking at what is preventing children from surviving and thriving in their community. We then work with the community to bring the pieces of the puzzle together to build a better life for all children. For sponsors, it’s a personal way to show life-changing love to children in need.
World Vision Democratic Republic of Congo is responding to widespread natural disasters and armed conflict with emergency response efforts, particularly in the eastern part of the country. We provide food aid, nutrition and health care and humanitarian protection—including the reintegration of displaced families and children.
Our Raw Hope initiative provides life-saving essentials to children and families in dangerous contexts like Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria and the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
