Liliane Maombi is a passionate leader with 17 years of experience working in the sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) health field in the Goma region of DR Congo. She holds degrees in nursing and reproductive health with a specialization in midwifery, and she cares deeply about coming alongside women as they heal.
Today, Liliane serves as World Relief DR Congo’s SGBV/HIV Officer. She joined World Relief in February 2021 and leads the team in fighting against gender-based violence and the prevention of HIV/AIDS. She approaches her work with creativity, leading awareness workshops, forming youth clubs, creating flyers and collaborating with local authorities and other NGOs to decrease gender-based violence and prevent HIV/AIDs. She cares deeply about the women she works with and feels it is God’s call on her life to come alongside them with compassion and mercy.
Though her work keeps her busy, Liliane took a few moments out of her day to share a bit of her personal story and about her work at World Relief.
We are grateful for Liliane and the rest of our team in DR Congo. We invite you to pray for them as they lead and serve others in vulnerable situations. On Sunday, May 22, 2021 Mount Nyiragongo, a volcano, erupted just six miles from the city of Goma where World Relief DR Congo has an office. The lava flow affected 297,016 people including two World Relief Staff who lost their homes. Our team is on the ground working to assess the needs of those affected. If you want to join World Relief in responding when and where disasters happen you can join us on The Path, and be a part of a community that is able to give monthly where it’s needed most.
