Democratic Republic of Congo
Located in the middle of Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo is one of the most impoverished countries in the world. With over 77 million people residing in the Congo, 64% live in poverty and about 6.7 million suffer from hunger. Due to war and lack of infrastructure, necessary resources like water, become isolated and scarce in areas along the Congo. Causing more than half of Congo to live without access to clean water. This impact ripples throughout Congo, as about three million children under five years of age, suffer from acute malnutrition.
Education is an area of Congo that has improved over the past decade. However, it is estimated still, that 3.5 million of primary age children are out-of-school. And 33% of children who enter the first grade will not make it past the sixth grade. We believe health and education are what will be the driving force behind the change in the Congo.
These two subjects are key to providing the next generation an opportunity to succeed and live side by side with the Lord, Jesus Christ. Our projects like the computer center, the access to clean water, the building of schools and the Legacy Project focus on lifting these areas of improvement. With your support, we can continue to serve through Jesus Christ.
Why We Serve The Congo
Everything we do, we believe in serving through the name of Jesus Christ. We believe through him we are his faithful servants and through him, we become the voice of the voiceless. We want to bring a spirit of hope. We want to inspire. We serve Congo through community development and equipping young Congolese with Jesus Christ, so they to can have Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
It is imperative to have all the programs of Kulungu For Congo introduce men and women of all ages to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In the end, what counts is how many souls have been saved, how many believers are walking with the lord and the truth is well known because the Lord said: “I am the way, the truth and the life no one comes to the father but by me”. For what it is for a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul? Let’s save souls.
