What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Working with Leprosy patient

Did you know that the indigenous people of the Congo region are Aka pygmies?

Although diminutive in stature, they are renowned for their bravery and ability to hunt, fish and thrive in the jungle.

Unfortunately, they are discriminated and marginalized by the majority population.

On top of that, their community has a very high rate of leprosy.

The good news is that there is a cure for leprosy! The bad news is that it is very difficult to locate and medically treat nomadic people who are often on the move.

The Kimia Care Center is one piece of the larger solution as it provides accommodation for patients and their families as they undergo initial treatment.

The longer term plan is to have them reintegrate in their communities while being monitored by trained health personnel.

In this manner, it is our privilege to help those who have contracted leprosy and work toward eliminating leprosy from the Congo.

Are you willing to be part of the solution?

Are you willing to act as the hands of Jesus showing love to the Aka people?

We need both medical and non-medical people to join arms with our team in the Congo.

Medically, we are looking for nurses of all kinds, physical therapists, occupational therapists, physician assistants, and doctors as our team screens for new patients and monitors the treatment of those already identified.

If any aspects of the above opportunity resonates with you, be sure to contact us to see if this could be a fit for you.
