In My Backyard travels to the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2018

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), malaria is the main cause of death among children under five. Improving malaria diagnosis, particularly at the community level, increases the number of cases of children that are correctly managed and treated.

In eastern part of the country the disease is “out of control” with many parents letting their sick children die at home because they cannot afford treatment.

Many also cannot go to the hospital just because they cannot afford the price  of treatment and plus the cost of getting there.

IMBY not only will provide vaccines for treatment but will provide clean water via wells and education.

Providing Clean Water

In the DRC, the government does not have the ability to improve its water pumping system, because of lack of funds. Instead water is supplied to needy areas through rusty, decaying pipes.

However, in some areas, the locals are only able to get water from local streams and ponds. However, many of these streams are contaminated with waste, chemicals or bacteria. This creates major health issues as locals who find themselves in such situations have no choice. Studies have shown that most Congolese have not died from violence linked to the wars fought, but rather from malaria, diarrhea and malnutrition, all problems associated with the lack of clean water.
