Your donations help to change lives
Every ticket bought and sold has made a BIG impact for vulnerable families in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Raging conflict is causing extreme food scarcity in the DRC, devastating the lives of people like Feza, who lives in the Kalemie territory.
Feza and her husband work as farmers, but they still don’t earn enough to feed their five growing children. The extreme food scarcity in the DRC left Feza’s children at risk of deadly malnutrition.
Thanks to kind supporters like you, Feza was able to receive immediate food assistance including flour, oil, beans and salt, so she could feed her family.
She also received seeds and tools to grow her own nutritious crops of cowpea, peanut, and maize – ensuring that her children will be safe from hunger in the long term.
She’s now selling her leftover crops to help put her children through school too.
