Democratic Republic of Congo

DR Congo is struggling to recover from Africa’s “world war” in which millions died between 1998 and 2003. DR Congo hosts the UN’s largest peacekeeping mission, however Eastern regions are still volatile despite 2013 peace agreements.

In 2007, Fields of Life was invited by a church in Goma to construct a school in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Assemblies of God was the 62nd partner school built by Fields of Life and it is probably our most unusual one in that it is built on a 34-year old lava field.
