ACT for Congo

Our partners are now focused on stabilizing lives after Mt. Nyiragongo erupted in Goma, DR Congo in May 2021. They provide resources for clean water, organize to avoid spreading preventable disease, trauma counseling, and community organization to help people transition out of the temporary camps and rebuild their lives. Examples of other directed programs include building a union for domestic workers in Goma and providing mentoring for women building small businesses.
