The bloodiest conflict since World War II

6.3 million displaced in the Democratic Republic of Congo

For over two decades, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has suffered from relentless civil war, resulting in unspeakable violence and oppression. Especially targeting women, this violence perpetuates a cycle of endless suffering, displacing 6.3 million internally and forcing 1 million to flee the country. Approximately 6 million have died since 1996—a number many consider to be a vast understatement.

Alongside this conflict, the country faced a historic natural disaster in 2023: torrential rains causing the Congo River to swell, displacing around 500,000 people, including our Foursquare family.

There are 1,300 Foursquare Churches in the DRC. Foursquare Disaster Relief is providing resources and empowering them to offer relief while they support their nation through the ongoing crisis.

Foursquare Disaster Relief Response

Medical Aid

In 2023, FDR Medical conducted training for DRC medical professionals. The local team is now equipped with the skills necessary to conduct medical outreaches and respond effectively during acute crises.

Food Distribution

Led by Foursquare DRC, food distributions of rice, maize, oil, salt, and beans are being held in refugee camps to relieve the starvation that plagues thousands.

Ongoing Care

Foursquare DRC, under the leadership of national leader Apostle Constant Damba Onasaka, partners with Foursquare Disaster Relief to provide ongoing care for the community. Challenges are perpetual, thus the need for financial support persists.

As we have served thousands in the displacement camps here in Eastern DRC, I have witnessed the hand of God reaching people—miracles have happened. The gospel has permeated the camps and many have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. There are so many needs, we must maintain a long-term vision for this ministry. Thank you for partnering with us.
