Week 2 - THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO
Through their hospital and community development programs HEAL Africa provides vital health care and holistic support to the most vulnerable people in a region devastated by ongoing conflict and poverty.
The COVID crisis has stretched HEAL’s resources – their hospital is the designated COVID care centre for a region of nine million people – but they remain committed to showing Jesus’ love to the outcast and forgotten during this crisis.
HEAL Africa’s Uamusho project is an outreach program providing refuge and educational opportunities for young people living on the streets. The project was hit especially hard by the recent lockdown, with many young people being forced back into their former lives on the street.
Ephphatha’s Centre for the Deaf provides a safe haven for those who have been rejected by society due to a hearing impairment. The centre includes the only specialised medical care and education in the DRC for deaf people including a primary school, secondary school and vocational training taught in sign language, along with a health clinic that, all together, serves over 3,400 people each year.
