Non Governmental Organization
The Democratic Republic of Congo has spent decades in the grip of violent conflict, recurrent health and food crises and economic unrest. Security has severely deteriorated since 2000, displacing over 5 million people and leaving 20 million in need of humanitarian assistance. In Congo, women and girls face widespread violence, and people, including children are extorted, kidnapped, and forced by their captors to fight or work.
Since its founding in the Democratic Republic of Congo, SAVE CONGO has helped vulnerable people meet urgent needs and provides support to rebuild communities, including providing individuals and communities affected by human rights violations with accessible, preventive, curative and protective services.
