Democratic Republic of Congo
People living in poverty 
People with disability 
An estimated 63.6% of people in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) live below the poverty line. With a population of 69.36 million, that means more than 44 million people live in extreme poverty.
Despite recent efforts, the prospects for people with disabilities remain bleak. The literacy rate among them is 10%, only 7% are in work and 96% live in inhumane conditions.
Our work in DRC, Central Africa, is focused on treating and preventing blindness and combating the spread of Neglected Tropical Diseases.
