Did you know? "Over the last three years, more refugees have come [to the U.S.] from the Democratic Republic of Congo than any other country on earth."

The ongoing conflict in Congo often goes unreported, and the impact of this trauma on families, on women and children, the most vulnerable survivors, is immense. Action Kivu partners with a local, Congolese-led organization that plants peace and hope in these communities in Congo through education, job-training, nonviolence and peace work, and health and trauma services. Be part of the movement - partner with us for the people of DRC!
