CONGO / PAUL CARLSON PARTNERSHIP
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.
Through the Advent Offering, we have continued to support a village medical clinic in the Konga Ingwa village through the Congo Clinic Initiative. This past year, the clinic was rebuilt with brick walls and a tin roof – these structural improvements will greatly improve the quality of patient care. We also continue to provide support in the form of medical supplies, pharmaceuticals, healthcare worker training and salary costs, and upkeep of the solar panels that provide the clinic with electricity.
This year we are going to deepen our ongoing support of the entire Paul Carlson medical system, which includes training medical professionals, providing medicines and supplies, improved infrastructure, and quality patient care.
