Displaced Christians in Komanda, DRC receive aid

KOMANDA — Violence is continuing to displace Christians in the Democratic Republic of Congo – but believers have not been forgotten. Thanks to the charity Open Doors displaced Christians in Komanda have received food and other relief aid.

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, ADF, an Islamic extremist group, is displacing Christian villagers to form a caliphate. Victims from attacks by ADF have sought refuge in Kamanda, where there is little food or space.

They sleep rough because they sleep in a school. When classes start in the morning, they must pick up their belongings and move outside, even when it rains. We aren’t being supported. So we are happy and we thank God that your organisation has thought of us.

We pray that God will bless you abundantly. Because of you, we have rice and beans to eat.


I would just like to say thank you very much, and may God bless you abundantly.

Woman 3:

I say thank you for the work that your organisation has done through the local church.

Woman 2:

Please pray for us that our country finds peace.
