In Mudusa, hundreds of families will gain access to healthcare

Good progress is being made at the Mudusa Orange Village in the province of Kivu, 80 kilometres from Buvaku. This isolated region has seen many conflicts - residents lead difficult lives, with almost no access to healthcare or education. The healthcare centre has just been completed with the help of local people who needed to contribute to the works.

 

 

Access to healthcare changes everything

The healthcare centre, which is made from durable, environmentally friendly materials, is set to open its doors to the residents of Mudusa: 28,000 people who, till now, had no access to this kind of infrastructure.
With the first stage now complete, a surgical unit will be built next. This will also benefit the surrounding villages, or 70,000 people!

It all started in September, in partnership with the LIDE which oversaw the works with local engineers and

.
These works have not been easy to carry out, with very little infrastructure... and with 600 metres of roads not suitable for motor vehicles, it was not possible for the lorries to drive materials to the building site. The residents ended up having to take them to the site themselves.

 

 

Already three Orange Villages in the country

The Village of Mudusa is the third Orange Village in the Democratic Republic of Congo, after Kabweke, also in the province of North Kivu

and Ituri. Like the 60 Orange Villages built by the Foundation in Africa, they provide water, healthcare and a school - i.e. vital resources in the most destitute regions.
