Wars in the Ituri province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo have displaced many people, including members of a church.

Members of that church are suffering, says Mandela Lutaumbe Lualika, president of an association of Baptist churches that includes this church in Ituri.

These people, he says, lack basic necessities, including food, drinking water, blankets, and tarps to build shelters.

“This Christian population is in danger,” Mandela says. “Let us pray for them, because they are in great suffering without help.”
