Canada is sending help to assist your people with the food and hunger crisis!
Congo is experiencing an extended period of conflict which has began to affect their food security and as a result, a hunger crisis is happening.
Severe food insecurity afflicts 7.7 million, and more than 4.6 million children are acutely malnourished. Only 9.3 percent of the population consume an acceptable minimum diet.
While there are farmers and land to farm in Congo, many farmers have been displaced from their homes due to the conflict that is happening. The farmers that haven't been displaced are without a formal market to sell their products.
The most effective international ways to help the people in Congo are by resolving the conflict that has created the hunger crisis, and by providing food aid until they can grow and sell their own food consistently.
Internationalism can help the people of Congo get back on their feet. It can also help stop the fighting if stronger, wealthier countries are willing to help both militarily and with humanitarian ways.
The most effective conflict solution that will help the food problem in Congo is peacekeeping forces from Canada and the UN entering the conflict with the goal of helping people get to safety and more secure places, and with the goal of talking to all parties involved in the conflict and finding a compromise and an agreement that suits all parties.
