In June our country manager Francesco and our Aleimar’ volunteers Franca and Gianni took part in the periodic monitoring trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo. This has been the opportunity to visit all Aleimar’ projects in the Country in favor of children that live in conditions of vulnerability and in particular to strengthen the relationship with our local partner that manage the dispensary of Sambwa near the city of Lubumbashi. Moreover, our collaboration with AMKA Onlus in Mabaya gives us hope for the future!
Strengthening collaborations is really fundamental also because malnutrition is unfortunately still widespread in the Democratic Republic od Congo. Nowadays 43% of children suffer from moderate or severe malnutrition and 76,6% of the population live under the poverty line (UNDP data). Guaranteeing availability and access to safe and sufficient food, with the purpose of affirming the right of local populations to be able to decide their own food and production system, is what we would like to promote. Food self-sufficiency has been put to the test by the social and economic crisis caused by the pandemic and by extreme climatic phenomena caused by climate change, which are increasingly affecting our areas of intervention.
Our effort in favor of all the children of the province Haut-Katanga has never stopped, especially after the geopolical turmoil happened in 2022 and also in 2023, which have increased inflation and food insecurity. A lot of families in the region can not afford daily food access and clean water. These factors have led to raising malnutrition of the most vulnerable part of the local population: children and pregnant women.
We hope that all of you will follow us in our mission in order to support even more children in the Democratic Republic of Congo!
