Congo Leprosy Eradication Project – Project Administrator

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?
