Where Your Purchase is Helping
Mennonites in DR Congo are responding to the suffering of displaced people there and in the cities of Kikwit and Tshikapa this spring by distributing food packages of flour, beans, oil and salt that will feed 4,000 people, or 830 households, for three months. They also have begun to distribute 1,000 dignity kits to girls and women, and 100 children in Kabwela have received school supplies.
Agnès Ntumba (wearing a light blue shirt on the right) and her family share a pot of beans that Ntumba made from supplies that were part of a food distribution she received earlier that day.
“We eat once a day. It is not enough” Ntumba said. “We are suffering,” she added, speaking not just of her family but of the many displaced people in Kabwela. (MCC photo/Mulanda Jimmy Juma)
