The second-largest country in Africa is one of the world’s poorest despite its wealth of natural resources. Around 72 per cent of the 100 million residents of the Democratic Republic of the Congo live below the poverty line. The country is defined by political instability, war and violence. But health crises such as serious outbreaks of Ebola, measles, cholera and now the Covid 19 pandemic are also making life hard for the population. Welthungerhilfe's work focuses on sustainable food security, agricultural training, road construction, social integration and emergency aid.
