A Foundation of Hope
The Gertler Family Foundation (GFF) is a philanthropic initiative committed to helping vulnerable areas of the Congolese population. GFF funds more than 50 programs and projects across the DRC, bringing vital assistance to tens of thousands of Congolese every year.
Since its inception in 2004, the GFF has invested $120 million in social initiatives in Kinshasa, Katanga, Kasaï-Oriental, Maniema, Orientale and Sud Kivu provinces - becoming the DRC’s largest charitable organization.
WORKING WITH THE DRC’S MOST VULNERABLE
Through the hospitals, health clinics, farms, schools, homes the GFF has built and the medicine, food, clothing, clean water and other assistance the GFF has provided, the GFF has helped improve the lives of countless Congolese - both in major cities and remote villages.
The GFF focuses mainly on supporting people with limited access to basic health care services, children and adults born with facial deformities, inter-city children born HIV positive, youth and adults living with HIV-AIDS, orphans, the disabled, families stricken by natural disasters, and so many others.Learn more about the foundation
