Resources for your church

The DRC is a country that has been ravaged by decades of conflict. Over the last 12 months, the violence has intensified significantly.

With more than 5 million people forced from their homes, families like Dheve’s* are living in temporary camps, lacking access to many of the basics needed to survive.

Tearfund is providing clean drinking water, handwashing stations, toilets and hygiene kits.

We’re also giving families farming tools, seeds and training to help them get back on their feet and provide for themselves in the future.

But the need is great. We can't reach those like Dheve and her family without support from churches like yours.
