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 mean that many rural communities lack necessities like hospitals, schools, and clean drinking water. The North Katanga Conference of 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 children orphaned by war or disease; Wings of the Morning aviation ministry, which flies sick or injured Congolese from rural areas to city hospitals; and rural health clinics, which provide basic care and protection from diseases like malaria, cholera, and dysentery.
