Summary

Mary has been based in Congo since 1965.During this time she has developed a small health centre into a 180 bed hospital and maternity, serving a wider area and needy population,close to the Angolan border. She has recently been instrumental in the building of a new primary school in the village.This year marks her 80th birthday and the anniversary of 55 years of working in Congo. Presents can't get to her due to coronavirus border closures so we are raising funds for her work instead.

Challenge

Katoka is a village in DRCongo close to the Angolan border,it has seen conflict over the years and hosted thousands of Angolan refugees, who have now all returned.The area has very little development (no mains electricity or water),most of the population live hand to mouth existences, growing their food in local fields.There is a high level of malaria and infant mortality.Internet connectivity has declined in recent months and Mary is struggling to communicate the situation with the wider world.

Solution

Katoka Mission Hospital has an excellent reputation in the area, due to the resources it has to offer in comparison to many of the State hospitals. The hospital receives little support from the Government & is mainly reliant on supporters in other parts of the world. A new primary school building is nearing completion & will offer much needed education to many local children. Mary will be able to use support given to better communicate & equip the hospital & school to help those in real need.

Long-Term Impact

We would like to provide Mary with funds for her 80th birthday and 55th anniversary of working in Congo to enable her to make a significant difference in the many and varied projects at Katoka.
