The Msenwa Foundation thanks you for your compassion and generosity for emergency flood relief in Uvira, DR Congo. In just over a week, together you raised $3,010 of the $5,000 goal. The Congo for Christ Centre, our partner organization in DR Congo, has already been able to distribute some of much needed emergency food and supplies to 100 families in their neighbourhood. Each family received several kilograms of beans, rice, a wash basin and cleaning supplies. We are so grateful for your support, making it possible for the Msenwa Foundation to provide this support to families in desperate need.
Our world has been turned upside down with COVID-19. As the world struggles to respond to the overwhelming needs caused by COVID-19, the city of Uvira in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo awoke on Friday April 17, 2020 to extreme flooding - more than 3500 homes were washed away and 24 people are confirmed dead, with possibly many others.
