DR Congo

DR Congo :


Caritas International has been present in the Democratic Republic of the Congo since 1960. Our teams are based in Kinshasa and Bukavu, monitoring the situation and implementing projects. Caritas International is active in both the west (Congo Central and Kinshasa provinces) and the east (South Kivu). We support the national Caritas network and work with local partners in various fields.

Our approach is inclusive and spans multiple sectors. We aim to address numerous crises by combining humanitarian action, sustainable development, and the promotion of social cohesion. In terms of development, we focus on social entrepreneurship and strengthening food sovereignty. In humanitarian terms, we work on disaster risk reduction (conflicts, natural disasters) and better anticipation of these disasters. We strive to enhance the capacity and resilience of local communities.

The Caritas network's presence in various communities and the "humanitarian watch" mechanism enable us to provide rapid emergency aid in crises.
