Individuals & Families
Every gift to the Paul Carlson Partnership makes something happen in Congo.
Adults, children, and families can give. A five-year-old girl asked her friends, rather than giving presents at her birthday party, to give money to Paul Carlson for the kids in Congo. Other children have set up lemonade stands or done small jobs. In one family, the parents decided how much to give, then the whole family decided which program area to give it to.
We periodically send volunteer medical teams for 1-2 weeks to do teaching as well as patient care. You can learn more about that program on our Paul Carlson Medical Ambassadors website. We occasionally need volunteers to help out with short-term or on-going projects. Keep an eye on our blog (linked in the menu on this page), or subscribe to the Paul Carlson Update, our online newsletter. We’ll post an announcement there when we are seeking volunteers.
The people of the DR Congo live in very difficult circumstances, shaped by their deep poverty and the continuing violence in the eastern part of the country. Not all problems can be addressed by relief and development programs. Some are justice issues. These people, whose voices too often are not heard, need friends in the developed world to speak up for them. Check our blog, linked in the menu above, for periodic stories about issues and about organizations that are advocating with a collective voice for the people of Congo.
