Please pray for the victims of the Ebola crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Since the outbreak in DRC began in August 2018, there have been 608 cases and 368 deaths in North Kivu and Ituri provinces. CBM has ongoing projects in this region, through our church partner, the Baptist Church in Central Africa (CBCA). CBCA has been equipping churches, schools and other public places with hygiene kits. They have also led awareness campaigns within local communities to prevent the virus from spreading. Due to the instability of the region and its proximity to borders, health officials say the virus has been difficult to contain. Please pray for stability in the region and the security of the health facilities. Pray also for affected populations to trust the response efforts and work with the responders to contain the outbreak. Pray for the responders who are working tirelessly to end the crisis.
