Democratic Republic of Congo Crisis ResponseDONATE NOW TO ERDO


ERDO is providing food to people in the DRC who are suffering through hunger, conflict and illness.

The Democratic Republic of Congo is now the third largest hunger crisis in the world. 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 will be working with the local Pentecostal church denomination in the DRC. Together, we will be responding to people’s critical hunger needs with 6 months of emergency food supplies, delivered to 1,180 families in the area.

Emergency food supplies will contain staple local food items. Following the DRC’s food regulation requirements, this food will meet a family’s minimum dietary needs.

To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, food distributions will take place in small groupings while using appropriate social distancing measures and personal protective equipment.

These emergency food distributions will be carried out in partnership with other programs. In order to create lasting community change, we’ll be working with people the local denomination has been ministering to with trauma counselling, safe spaces for children and education programs. Our project in the DRC will provide hope, transforming families lives. Parents will not have to worry about the struggle to feed their children. This project will save lives and reduce malnutrition.

Thank you so much for your donation of any amount. Your generosity is saving lives.
