About the DR Congo
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo) is the second largest country in Africa and its population of 106 million people currently endure one of the world’s lowest living standards.
In addition to the ‘common’ challenges of poverty, ongoing military conflict in the northern region of Kivu (where our ministry partners and serve) has forced 5 million people to flee from their homes and millions more to live under constant threat of violent attack from rebel forces.
The DR Congo has the 2nd most internally displaced people in the world and HEAL Africa serves the community living in the Mugunga settlement, one of the largest refugee and displaced people camps in the world.
