Straddling the Equator, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), is the second largest country in Africa after Algeria. The 61 million inhabitants comprising 250 ethnic groups speaking 700 local languages endure one of the world's lowest living standards. War, government corruption, neglected public services and depressed copper and coffee markets are contributing factors. Our ministry partners in the DRC work specifically with people who are hearing impaired, have severe medical needs, or are vulnerable children or orphans.
