KWILU NGONGO HEALTH CENTRE - DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO
The town of Kwilu Ngongo has a population of 42,000 people with no adequate health care facilities. Life expectancy in DR Congo is 47 years, and many people there suffer from malnutrition and preventable diseases with little access to sanitation or clean water.
SDB are contributing towards this three-year, $675,000 project which provides a community health centre, mother and baby care beds and two new classrooms. The mother and baby hospital building will soon be complete.
This project is a partnership between the town of Kwilu Ngongo, Local Health Authority, Susila Dharma (DRC), the German Aid agency BMZ, The Buchan Trust, and Susila Dharma Britain, all coordinated internationally by Susila Dharma International.
