For decades, Katanga Province, in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, has suffered humanitarian crises—from famine to war. A group of three territories, called the "triangle of death," has been hit especially hard since 2011, forcing thousands of families to flee. Catholic Relief Services, with our local Caritas partners, recently launched our latest emergency response program in the region. The CAPABLE project is helping families who have fled—and those hosting them. Thanks to funding from generous private donors in the United States, CRS is using cutting-edge technology to ensure that suffering families quickly receive the help they need.
