Repairing A Bridge Impacts Everyone
People in DR Congo know that investing in repairing bridges and roads can make a significant economic impact for their communities, as well as provide access to schools, hospitals, and water sources.
When bridges are in poor condition, they threaten physical safety and economic security. Accidents cause the loss of thousands of dollars worth of goods, and even loss of life. Farmers can’t get their goods to market, walking over a log bridge to a hospital or clinic is dangerous, carrying food, water, and heavy materials is risky, and children can’t easily get to school.
Through our partners, many bridges have been repaired in the area. But there are many more problematic and dangerous bridges that desperately need replacing or repairing.
In the Bogose Nubea region, we plan to complete the causeway and six bridges in 2020, and the final larger bridge over the main river channel in 2021.
In order to accomplish these goals, we must raise $33,000 each year for the next three years.
We believe we can do this with your help!
