The emergency grassroots response to the tragic floods and landslides that have claimed hundreds of lives, decimated families and destroyed critical resources and infrastructure in Kalehe in D.R. Congo.
This fundraiser will provide emergency support and relief to victims, their families, and the community.
There were devastating flash floods and landslides on May 4th in Kalehe, a territory in the South Kivu province in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The latest death toll is at 425, more than 3,000 homes have been destroyed and more than 5,000 people are still missing. The disaster has also caused extensive damage to roads, bridges, and hospitals, leaving many locals without basic necessities such as food, water, and shelter. Six schools have been destroyed, the water distribution networks swept away, and hospitals in the villages of Bushushu and Nyamikubi are still submerged under water.
This campaign is seeking to raise $80,000 USD to support the emergency response and provide health services, medication, housing, shelter, hygiene kits, transportation, dignified funerals for victims, their families and more.
Actions Kalehe was formed as an emergency response by organizations and leaders in North and South Kivu who have been impacted and are committed to supporting the affected communities.
Members of the response team went to the affected villages to assess the situation, visit hospitals and camps, and will be going back to assist and coordinate volunteers, humanitarian aid and identify victims.
