Through partnership with our Congolese medical leaders, we identified points of greatest need and facilitated rural clinics to receive solar power for lights and refrigeration, improved structures, and began the journey into capping springs for clean water near each clinic.
You, our partners, faithfully joined us in this 5-year fundraising initiative to raise the standard of healthcare in rural village communities. And together, with God, we moved forward!
UCare4Congo builds on the success and momentum of CCI and invites you to participate as key partners who will catalyze the forward motion of raising the standard of healthcare in Congo in 2020 and beyond.
Our mission, together, is to restore health in rural Ubangi-Mongala communities through training, medical services, quality patient care, and improved infrastructure.
As the Clinic Initiative was ending, we asked ourselves,
What did PCP learn, and what did the CEUM medical leaders learn?
What stands our in this journey together that will inform our next steps?
Below is a glimpse into what we learned together that has lead us to UCare4Congo: partnering in holistic healthcare.
Based on the approach that working through village communities is the best way to realize long-term solutions that endure through generations, our partnership with the Covenant Church of Congo has yielded a long-term strategic direction which reflects the nature of our work together: partnering in holistic healthcare.
How does it work?
UCare4Congo supports the entire Covenant Church of Congo medical system, which includes training medical professionals, providing medicines and supplies, improved infrastructure, and quality patient care. Our partners can deepen their holistic gospel ministry of caring for the whole person and entire communities through UCare4Congo.
How can I get involved?
We invite you to give monthly to UCare4Congo
to ensure our partners can meet the greatest medical needs in their communities and build a healthier future for their children.
Make a 3 year pledge to invest in UCare4Congo.
Below are examples of what your pledge can do.
