More than 6 million people have died in war-torn Congo since the civil war began in 1996. Nearly half were children. Many aid agencies have stayed away, declaring it to be too hard a place to work. But the Paul Carlson Partnership has stayed the course, working alongside the local Congolese leadership for medical and economic development.

Partnering with Congolese Leadership

Paul Carlson Partnership works collaboratively with Congolese professionals to assist and support the priorities of their leadership. Our Medical Ambassadors equip, inspire confidence, and step aside to take on supporting roles.


Multiplying Impact Through Training of the Trainers

Through relational, contextually appropriate, and strategically focused partnerships, western medical professionals lend their expertise and work alongside their medical counterparts in the Congo who train others.


50 Years of Legacy Experience

Since 1964, our mission has been to catalyze the growth of self-sustaining families and communities in places of deep poverty. Working with Congolese partners, we invest in medical, economic, and infrastructure development.


Relational Investing in Local Ownership

Through our unique microfinance program, the Paul Carlson Partnership works with family farmers by equipping and connecting them to local markets, fueling the opportunity for long-term sustainability in the region.


What is PCP?

In the five decades since Paul Carlson Partnership was founded, the Congo has experienced ongoing war and unrest. Exploitation and conflict have sadly become a way of life. Through it all, PCP has stayed the course with medical and pharmaceutical support, microfinance investments, and operational support of the local CEUM (Covenant) leadership.
