In 2017 Project Congo is partnered with the Italian non-profit Con Vista Sul Mondo (CVSM) to complete the Maternity Center at St. Vincent’s hospital in Bukavu, DRC. Thanks to all our faithful Project Congo supporters, we successfully raised the funds as did CVSM and construction is is completed. Project Congo members Jean McNamara and Dr Sylvia Esser-Gleason along with members of ConVista Sul Mundo were able to attend the inauguration ceremony in February 2018. This facility will provide a much needed safe, sanitary and technologically up to date facility for mother and babies. A big thanks to all who helped make this dream happen!
