Democratic Republic of Congo

In 2020 the eastern region of Democratic Republic of Congo was affected by severe flooding during the midst of the Covid-19 lockdown. Many lives were lost and property damaged. Jabez International Mission, together with its partners in the region, provided financial relief which prevented many more lives being lost through starvation and disease, and helped to repair properties.
