Who We Are
An initiative of the Gertler Family Trust, the Gertler Family Foundation (GFF) is committed to helping address the needs of vulnerable segments of the Congolese population. Since its inception in 2004, the GFF has invested millions of dollars in health, agriculture, education, infrastructure development, emergency, cultural and other projects in Kinshasa, Katanga, Kasaï-Oriental, Maniema, Orientale and Sud Kivu provinces and elsewhere throughout the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
Through the hospitals, health clinics, farms, schools, homes and more the GFF has built and the medicine, food, clothing, clean water and other assistance the GFF has provided, we have helped change the lives of countless Congolese living in major cities and remote villages 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.
Mr. Dan Gertler is the co-founder of the GFF, one of the largest foundations in the DRC. Mr. Gertler, who is also a senior advisor to the Fleurette Group, and his family are determined to actively contribute to social development throughout the DRC, which is reflected in the GFF’s commitment to develop communities for a brighter future.
