HEAL Africa's hospital and community development programs address the root causes of illness and poverty, as well as the effects the ongoing conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have had on communities and individuals.
Our mission is to train health professionals; strengthen social activists; and provide physical, spiritual, and social healing. Our vision is whole person health care for the people of DR Congo. HEAL Africa is Congolese-led, grassroots, and evidence-based. For more information, please visit www.healafrica.org.
