One of the most effective means of spreading the word about the ongoing conflict in Congo is YOU. Volunteers and interested individuals from across the globe have gathered their friends, family, neighbors, churches, schools and community groups involved. We all have circles of influence – consider getting yours engaged.
There are so many ways you can help. Invite your circle over to see Lumo, a documentary about one of HEAL Africa’s patients. Start a book club using Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Consider making your next birthday party a fundraiser. Or come up with your own creative way to get others involved!

How to get started
The Democratic Republic of Congo is rich in minerals. Its history has been one of civil war, corruption, and poverty. Over 6 million lives have been lost to war, disease, and malnutrition.
Once known for it quality health care system, the political and economic collapse over the last decades has lead to limited or no access to health care for about 70 percent of the population. There is less than one physician for every 10,000 and less than one surgeon for every million people.
Our love for Christ and His teachings motivate us to serve the most vulnerable people in a region that has experienced so much darkness.
