DRC Ebola Crisis

Please continue to pray for our response to the Ebola crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The outbreak, which was declared an emergency last month, is centred in North Kivu province – one of CBM’s main project areas in the country. Health officials report that 116 people have been infected, including 77 deaths, most of which have been confirmed by lab results. Our church partner in DRC, the Baptist Church in Central Africa (CBCA), has been working alongside the World Health Organization and other NGOs to distribute supplies and promote awareness. The CBCA continues to provide training workshops for local church leaders to prevent the virus from spreading. In a recent workshop, 143 leaders from the region participated in the training. Please pray for these leaders as they share this life-saving information with their congregations and seek to better serve their communities during these uncertain times. The CBCA has also distributed hygiene kits to churches, schools and health facilities. We pray that God would strengthen all those involved in the emergency response efforts, and that He would comfort those who are mourning.
