This video highlights one simple but highly effective strategy called Helping Babies Breathe® (HBB), a low-tech approach to neonatal resuscitation. HBB allows birth attendants to effectively manage newborn asphyxia within “The Golden Minute" after birth. In Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), maternal and child mortality remains among the highest in sub-Saharan Africa. Since 2010, the USAID-funded MSH-led Integrated Health Project (IHP), in cooperation with the Government of DRC, has been implementing high-impact interventions to end preventable maternal, newborn and child deaths.

Eng/French/Nat Congolese rebels fighting to oust President Laurent Kabila say they have shot down two Zimbabwean jet fighters southwest of Kinshasa as a warning. Zimbabwe deployed nine-hundred troops on Friday to support Kabila's embattled government. News of the jet attack came at the start of a peace summit, organised by South African President Nelson Mandela in Pretoria, to avert a deepening crisis in sub-Saharan Africa. Rebels claim to have shot down two Zimbabwean jet fighters on the Congo's western front as a warning to Zimbabwe. The announcement was made by rebel leaders at a news conference in the eastern Congo town of Goma on Saturday. So far there has been no independent confirmation of the attack, and no word on the fate of the pilots. The rebels, fighting...

On-going conflict and a devastating lack of services and infrastructure have created a humanitarian crisis of immense proportions in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Since 2009, almost 3 million people have been displaced within the country and half a million refugees remain in neighbouring countries. The European Commission funds aid efforts for people who have been forcibly displaced in the troubled Kivu region. One of the European Commission's partners, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), is helping uprooted families get their lives back on track by providing them with food assistance. Bernadette Sinanjiya fled to Uganda with her family when their neighbours were killed. When they returned to their village later on, they had nothing. Thanks to NRC, she started breeding chicke...
Since 1994, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been rent by ethnic strife and civil war, touched off by a massive inflow of refugees fleeing the Rwandan Genocide. This period of conflict has been the bloodiest in history since World War II. Almost 4 million people have died as a result of the fighting. The United Nations is concerned that 1000 people a day are still dying as a result of the conflict. Most of these deaths were due to starvation or disease that resulted from the war, not from actual fighting. Millions more have become internally displaced or have sought asylum in neighboring countries. Brit Olam's emergency unit - I Relief is gathering aid efforts for the refugees in DRC with the support of the Congo refugees, living in Israel. I Relief is now mount...

Many suffer serious sexual and physical abuse while kept in armed groups, living with a daily fear of violence and the prospect of fighting. Because of such experiences, these same girls are often abandoned by family members and shunned from community life. Through promoting girls’ involvement in community life, access to education, peer-to-peer support and many other ideas that we firmly believe can radically change the lives of former girl soldiers in the country. We want your help to change this. All donations to the appeal go directly towards our work with communities and local partners on how to better support these girls.

Justin "The Viking" Wren is a former professional Mixed Martial Artist who is now fighting for a cause much bigger than himself, for human rights in the Congo. The conditions are dire and while Justin is embedded with the Pygmy population to help drill wells so that they may have fresh water, they have limited resources for fresh water in the meantime. Help us raise the money for this AquaSun Responder S filter than can filter up to 100 Gallons of water every single day, using solar power alone. Time is of the essence, and I'm hoping to get this on it's way near Valentine's Day, 2014. (only 2 weeks)

2 decades of war, conflict and instability, 6 million dead and millions more displaced. In this thought-provoking documentary, I explore these worrying facts and hear from Congolese activists who are trying to draw attention to the political crisis in the DRC. They fear that the current president, Joseph Kabila, who first came to power in 2001 is looking to extend his fifteen-year rule against the people’s wishes. For a country plagued by decades of violence, this could have devastating consequences for the Congolese people who are still recovering from two civil wars.
