of rural population
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is located in central sub-Saharan Africa and ranked 147 out of 185 countries in the world based on the UN’s Human Development Index.1 Alarmingly, over 74% of the DRC population live in severe multidimensional poverty.
Serving the Unreached
Over 43 million people (53% of the population) lack access to a safe improved water source and over 72 million (89%) lack access to adequate sanitation facilities.2 Although Christianity is the dominant religion, 300,000 people remain unreached by the gospel.3
neverthirst began working in the DRC in 2020 to help people gain access to safe water and give a platform for the local Church to show God’s love. In the DR Congo, our implementing partner is working in isolated underserved rural villages, improving water through household biosand filters and protecting natural springs from contamination.
There are many churches in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, however there is a need for training in sound theology to help equip pastors and believers to love their neighbors in word and deed. Our implementing partners mobilize and invite local pastors and churches to participate in water programs in villages where there is often no Christian presence.

Serve an entire village or school with clean and living water. Projects range in cost depending on the region, project type, and amount of people served. Learn more here.
HOUSEHOLD FILTERS FOR VILLAGES
Provide 20 families with their own biosand filters to safely treat and improve drinking water. This helps saturate an entire village with household filters.
