Children's Book Featuring HEAL Africa

HEAL Africa Students Share Their Creativity and Their Voices Through A Unique Children’s Book

HEAL Africa is proud to highlight a wonderful new children’s book that features the creativity of over 30 young students at the Tungane and Mugunga schools in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. The book also highlights the inspirational work of HEAL Africa’s programs in DR Congo and features HEAL Africa’s Lyn Lusi as an inspirational female role model.

NDEZE AND NDAKASI’S NEW HOME is a touching tale of two orphaned gorillas who are rescued by a Park Ranger and eventually return to the forest where they were born. Published by the nonprofit organization Dot-to-Dot Children’s Books, the book is based on drawings and stories by students at two schools supported by HEAL Africa – the Tungane School at HEAL Africa’s hospital in Goma and the Mugunga Primary School located at the Mugunga Refugee Camp. Dot-to-Dot’s creative writing team selected favorite elements written during the workshop and combined them into a single story, making NDEZE AND NDAKASI’S NEW HOME an expression of the collective creativity of the young students who helped write it.
