Non Governmental Organization
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has spent decades in the grip of violent armed 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 the DRC, women and girls face widespread violence, and many 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 children, women and other people meet urgent needs and provided them with a support to rebuild their lives, including providing individuals affected by human rights violations with accessible, preventive, curative and protective services.
