Democratic Republic of the Congo
A forgotten humanitarian crisis
The people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo desperately need help. People are dying every day from diseases we can prevent and treat.
Together we make a difference
In less than five years, more than 3 million people have died - most from preventable and treatable diseases. The public health infrastructure is virtually broken down. The risk of epidemics remains high. Without international support to restore basic health care services, the humanitarian crisis in the Democratic Republic of the Congo will only continue to worsen.
