Susila Dharma Democratic Republic of Congo functions as both an SD National and as an SD Project. It has created healthcare centers and schools both in the Kinshasa region and farther out into the less developed regions. SD USA is contributing to building their newest healthcare center, The Mother and Child Hospital at Kwilu Ngongo.
Here are several articles about the project from Susila Dharma International Association’s (SDIA’s) web site:
A delegation from SD Canada, SD Congo, SD France, SD Germany and SDIA visited the land for a new community health centre in January 2016. Here is some footage of that visit.
A wonderful new fundraising initiative is happening in the south of England to raise money for the Kwilu Ngongo Mother-Child Hospital which is being built by SD Congo and its partners in the Democratic Republic of the Congo – the fourth community managed health centre to be built and managed by SDC in the DRC […]
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.
Paul Roberge documents the long journey, supported by so many SD nationals and donors, to buy, transport and put into operation a brick-making machine for SD Congo that will help sustain the organisation and provide low-cost, high quality building materials for SD schools, clinics and hospitals in a country in desperate need of good infrastructure.
From May 30 to June 18, SDIA team members Isabel Alvarez, Paul Roberge and Virginia Hamida Thomas spent time with the SD Congo team, providing support and assistance in project and financial management.
