Notice: Our Congo adoption program is currently closed.
DR Congo is located in West Africa that is home to 67.5 million people. French is the official national language and is a predominately Christian nation with 50% Roman Catholic and 20% Protestant. The DRC gained its independence from Belgium in the 1960’s, but over the course of these years has experienced great civil unrest and government instability.
The Democratic Republic of Congo has over 4 million orphaned children and a staggering mortality rate of 1 in 7 for children under the age of 5, largely due to malnutrition and lack of vaccinations. (UNICEF)
How We Help
Lifeline has been able to see all our Congo adoption cases closed and all the families home with their children.
