More details, videos, and stories to come as we highlight a new part of our Advent Offering each week in December….
CONGO / PAUL CARLSON PARTNERSHIP
We continue to support a village medical clinic in the Konga Ingwa village in the form of medical supplies, pharmaceuticals, healthcare worker training and salary costs, and installation and upkeep of solar panels that provide the clinic with electricity.
Medical care is inaccessible for the 1.6 million people in Congo’s Équateur Province. Typically, the closest hospital is a ten-mile walk and local village clinics lack basic necessities. The clinics operate without electricity or clean water. Medicines and supplies are available only intermittently. Curable illnesses take lives every day.
In partnership with several other local Covenant churches, funds from this year’s Advent Offering will equip a clinic in the village of Konga Ingwa for the coming year, providing it with first-time solar electricity, pharmaceuticals, medical supplies, salary for Gana the village nurse, and additional operations costs.
