Mother-Child Hospital Center of Kwilu Ngongo

In the DRC, one in six children dies before the age of five years old, due to highly preventable illnesses, including malaria and infections, so providing communities access to sound treatment and prevention can mean the difference between life and death. On Saturday, June 25, 2016 a ceremony was organised by SD Congo for laying the first stone of the Mother-Child Hospital Center of Kwilu Ngongo, effectively launching the construction phase of the project.
