Conflict and insecurity have forced millions of families to leave their homes in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
As the situation gets worse children make up the majority of those who’ve fled. Please help a family who have lost everything.
DRC Crisis Appeal
Violence has spread into previously untroubled areas and has intensified in others. The situation and need has dramatically deteriorated over the last 12 months, with 7 million children affected by the crisis.
We urgently need to help families and children living in this nightmare. Serious violence continues to be committed, including rape and other forms of sexual assaults, with women and children being the most at risk.
Hundreds of schools and health centres have been destroyed. Many families and children are struggling without the basics to survive.
We’re on the ground providing short and long term help with food, child protection and education but need your help to scale up our response.
Millions of people caught up in a humanitarian crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo risk rising levels of hunger, death and disease due to a lack of aid funding.

My name is Matthieu. I’m 13 years old, and I was in 5th grade before the crisis. I have a five-year-old sister and a little brother who’s seven. My oldest brother was killed in the conflict. A lot has happened in my country and in my family over the past ten months.
