Hold a Coin Drive to Help People in Congo

You can help both gorillas and people in the Congo through gorilla monitoring, care of orphaned gorillas, as well as health, education and livelihood programs which in turn benefit all gorilla conservation efforts. Your Coins for Congo™ coin drive will bring attention to the plight of the people and wildlife in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and funds to make change.

   We provide treatment for intestinal parasite infections among local peopleThe Fossey Fund has worked in the Congo since 2000 to save gorillas and the many other endangered animals there, through support of an immense corridor of nature reserves and national parks. Today, we are developing gorilla monitoring programs that we believe will discourage animal trafficking and save the endangered Grauer's gorilla from extinction. But with the ongoing security issues in Congo, many local people are suffering and it is not possible to save the gorillas without providing help and support to the human communities around them.

Whether you are an individual with one collection can asking friends and family to contribute, or an organization giving more than a million people the opportunity to participate, you would be amazed at what can be done with spare change.
