The communities of Yaoleka/Opala, deep in DRC’s tropical forest, opened their new Health & Maternity Centre with communal celebrations on February 19th last. From toddlers to elders, they came to join Oblate Provincial, Fr Habell for the blessing of the new facility. It was eloquent testimony to the importance people attach to the project.
In its first six months, the Centre has delivered babies safely to 80 mothers and facilitated hundreds of medical consultations. The Centre’s information and health education campaign is already changing attitudes to HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Cholera and other epidemics common in this part of DRC, and promoting basic steps in disease prevention. Ours thanks to Misean Cara and all who worked to make this project such a valuable service for these remote communities
