Who We Are
The Paul Carlson Partnership is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving medical and economic development in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We were first incorporated in 1966 in memory of Dr. Paul Carlson, an Evangelical Covenant Church missionary in the Congo who was killed during the Simba rebellion of 1964.
Our work in Congo is based on a legacy of partnership with local systems, professionals, and community members. Everything we do is in cooperation with local leadership and is planned with an eye for sustainability. We focus on two things: medical/healthcare and economic development. Our medical projects serve the healthcare network in the Equateur province, which is run by the local church body – CEUM. Our largest economic development project to-date, Farmers to Markets, was founded with a USAID grant and is run by local staff in the participating regions.
