Congo Helping Hands, Inc.

Web address:www.CongoHelpingHands.org
Nursing services:

A full range of nursing skills is needed. We are partnered with the Bulape Medical Center (hospital, nursing school, and community clinics), Kasai Occidental Province, DR Congo. The Center provides health care for 100,000 rural poor Congolese. We support a reference hospital with the following activities: surgery, pediatric, TB, maternity, general medicine, and outpatient services. There are 28 outlying community health clinics in neighboring villages. Also, the nursing school train community health care workers through their 2-year and 4-year programs. We support a rural poor area of DR Congo. Medical facilities lack modern conveniences and range from the hospital with solar power but without running water to the community health care clinic with bare floor and mud-wall thatched-roof building. We primarily support faith-based health care systems in the DR Congo. Visit our blog: http://www.EndingExtremePoverty.org
