We have received a message from Pastor John, who does much of our work in the Congo:
"Hello Executive Director I had the Church services at Mudja last Sunday , whereby I also profited to visit our clinic. It was by Great peaty (pity) that I met (found that) there has broken a heavy diarrhea which has affected all Mudja people. Consequently, there is no more medicines in the clinic and the patients sent me to tell you that you have become the only one to help them as you always do. I met children, men and women are getting treetments at our clinic and at least two persons are on the bed. Nurses told me that 25 patients have been coming in per day. The fellowers have decided 2 days’ prayings that God provides you more for this issue before some of our vulnerable mudja people and pygmies die. God bless you and your team. Here below are photos of patients receiving treatment at our clinic.

We were able to send $600 to Pastor John, and he has restocked the clinic with much needed supplies. We are saddened by their suffering, but we are so blessed to be able to care for the people of the Congo. What a heartbreaking, yet encouraging message: "you have become the only one to help them as you always do".
We are truly thankful for your donations and support - we couldn't do this without you. Your donations are being used to heal sickness, and change lives.
