Combatting Malnutrition

50% of the children in the Congo are malnourished. Africa 2030 grows a highly nutritious "superfood" called spirulina, a micro-algae that is the healthiest food nature has to offer, and the most effective solution in combatting malnutrition. At our nutrition center, 160 malnourished children arrive on a daily basis and receive nutritious spirulina biscuits. They also receive ongoing medical support to deal with various malnutrition-related diseases such as typhoid fever, malaria, intestinal parasites, diarroeha, anaemia and others.

Gorilla conservation
The DRC is home to the world's most endangered gorillas subspecies called the eastern lowland gorilla. Less than 3,000 individual gorillas remain in the wild. Africa 2030 works with the staff of the Kahuzi Biega National Park to protect this critically endangered species. Africa 2030 operates an aerial surveillance team that uses a drone to survey the gorillas' habitat, detect illegal activities within the national park and deter poachers from entering the park.
