DR Congo (2004-2014)

DWW worked in the DR Congo between 2004 & April 2014 when we left. We developed a health care system focused on Maternal Health in Katanga Province, SE Congo. It was a challenging environment; Katanga is 497,000 sq km in size and 16x as large as Belgium. We built a new hospital in Lubumbashi which completed in 2014 and also supported the running of 5 rural maternal and medical centers.
