WHY MEDICAL CARE?
1 in 5 children do not make their 5th birthday.
maternity too often means mortality.
Congo has one of the highest maternal death rates in the world, with 846 per 100,000 live births. (In the U.S., there are 18.5 per 100,000.)
FIghting maternal death rates means fighting the orphan crisis. We are committed to bringing change to this harsh cycle.
sweet Children from our center have died due to lack of medicine and available doctors.
One of Sabuli's biggest challenges these days is affording appropriate medical care for all 80+ children. In Gemena, quality medicine is difficult if not impossible to purchase at local clinics.
SO WHAT WERE DOING ABOUT IT?
CONGOVOICE has purchased new land and the foundation has been laid for our very own medical clinic as of 2018! This beacon of hope will serve the local community of Gemena and attempt to fight the ongoing orphan cycle due to the extremely high mortality rates in birthing mothers.
This exciting project will provide the much needed medical services to the orphaned children and local community. It will also become a major contributer to creating a self-sustaining children’s centre.
Here is an example of a hosptial about 3 hours away from Gemena.
Soon to be the new gemena medical clinic
