Fighting Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo
Ebola and Conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo

The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is battling the world’s second-worst Ebola outbreak. The deadly contagious disease has already killed more than 2,100 people in DRC since August 2018 and still threatens to spread into neighbouring countries. It is a children's crisis that has infected more than 800, left over 3,700 separated and above 2,000 children orphaned.

Ebola is a Highly Contagious, Deadly Disease Which Kills More Than Two-Thirds of Those Affected

Ebola is wreaking havoc in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo where health workers are racing against time to contain the deadly virus. This is a crisis on top of a crisis in a country where nearly13 million people already require humanitarian assistance.

Our teams are on the frontlines, responding to this disease by:

  • Training and equipping community leaders to help communities protect themselves through proper hygiene practices
  • Distributing hygiene kits to halt the spread of the disease
  • Supporting the survivors of Ebola
