Working for respect of each other’s religion or culture in order to avoid future wars.
Misercorde Association CC operates in Minembwe, in the high plateau of South Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The CC convenes about 50 members of the Muslim and Christian faiths to intervene on the effects of war in the DRC. The war has left many orphans and widows in dire need of support. Misercorde CC’s primary focus is to provide services to war victims, primarily orphans and widows by helping them reconstruct, reconcile, forgive, and learn to live in peace. Misercorde also collects funds from members to send orphans back to school, and provides education for widows to work collaboratively and support each other by building skills in tailoring. The CC is also committed to environmental protection by raising awareness and action in environmental efforts. As a CC working in a nation stricken by war, MISERCORDE strives to create an interfaith effort among people of different religions to connect on common social problems in order to spur peaceful co-existence and development in the area.
