Group Photo at the Center
Dear friends of Congo Lotus Care,
We have been open for about 8 months now, and we wanted to thank you helping us raise funds that have helped keep the center open up to this point. So the medical center’s volunteers, doctors, nurses, lab assistants, friends, and supporters here in Kinshasa wanted to say a HUGE thank you by sending you this group photo!
Since opening, we have seen an increasing number of women, girls and children who have received quality care every day. We have partners with two local hospitals in Kinshasa, and started receiving overflows referrals. Thanks to these partnerships, not only will hundreds of women receive ultrasounds to ensure both they and their babies are healthy, but many others will get kidney or liver conditions diagnosed, which could potentially save many lives.
We are working tirelessly to raise funds to build a fully functional maternity, delivery room, and surgical room. To that effect, Dr. Mpalata Mukanya, the main Doctor at the clinic, is currently in the US to collect medical supplies and equipment and will be returning at the Clinic on May 25th. Our next update will include details of visits to nonprofits in the Maryland area to collect medical supplies.
Until then, please stay engaged, and share information about us with friends and family!
