In the Democratic Republic of Congo, years of colonialism and civil war have left their mark on the people of this rugged land. A lack of infrastructure and social services means that many rural communities have no access to necessities like hospitals, schools, and clean drinking water. The North Katanga Conference of the United Methodist Church has stepped into that gap, and with the support of the West Ohio Conference, now provides services like the Kamina Children’s Home for youth orphaned by war or disease; Wings of the Morning aviation ministry, which flies sick or injured Congolese from rural areas to city hospitals; Kamisamba Farm, which trains farmers across the country on sustainable agricultural practices; and rural hospitals and health clinics, which provide care and prevention of diseases like malaria, cholera, and dysentery.
