The Congo has schools of medicine in each province, and an elite that carry out the teaching in a state of poverty hard to describe.

French/Nat Back in 1988, the World Health Organisation set a goal of eradicating polio globally by the year 2000. But although the number of sufferers has dropped dramatically on the African continent, a few countries - mainly those fighting wars - continue to be affected by the disease. APTN joined an immunisation team on a journey to remote pygmy communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where polio still cripples many people. The remote province of Equateur, 100 kilometres (65 miles) from the battle front between government and rebel forces. Villages are so isolated, they are accessible only by boat.

We are partnering with UJN in the construction of two story multipurpose building that will serve medical and counseling needs as well as providing a home for training. In addition to medical and mental health services the building will be used to house education, training, empowerment programs for men, women, and children as well as studio work. Our goal is to provide transformational, integrated learning and sharing. Women, children, and men will be equipped with the tools necessary to improve their spiritual, social, professional and personal lives, and that of their direct environment and society as a whole. They will be guided to become change agents in their communities. Read more about this project: https://mcefa.org/pages/the-congo-project Help support our projects: https://mc...
