Viele Menschen in der DR Kongo haben aufgrund der schwierigen Lebensumstände im Land nie gelernt, Felder ertragreich zu bestellen. Deshalb ermöglichen wir den Dorfbewohnern Schulungen im Anbau von Gemüse.

Fighting hunger with learning groups and community field work

More than 2.2 million children in the DR Congo are malnourished. Child mortality is extremely high, largely due to inadequate nutrition. In their distress, families resort to the cheapest foods, but these do not adequately provide children with the nutrients they need. The province of Sud-Ubangi is particularly threatened by hunger. Sign of Hope helps with special foods and empowers parents to sustainably ensure a balanced diet for their families.
