About Congo Lotus Care
Our First Project: The Clinic in Kinshasa
Congo Lotus Care’s very first project consists of a small, but well equipped and expertly staffed clinic that will contribute to saving the lives of women, girls and children.
Vision: Congo Lotus Care strives for a Congo where quality, affordable, and accessible healthcare are a reality for every man, woman and child.
Mission: Congo Lotus Care is a United States non-profit working to improve care for girls, mothers and newborns.
Dr. Mpalata Mukanya is an Obstetrician and Gynecologist with over 30 years of extensive academic and clinical experience in women’s reproductive health - including maternal and child health - in Congo, Cameroon, and Burkina Faso. He has worked in health institutions in the academic, public, and private sectors to establish programs that reduce the risk of premature delivery and maternal mortality. Dr. Mukanya is also a registered Diagnostic Sonographer (ARDMS). He currently resides in Maryland. At the Clinic in Kinshasa, he will lead a team of hand-picked health providers and will be in charge of providing health services. The health services will be free, but a fee will be applied to those who can afford to pay. This fee will sustain the clinic’s administrative, utilities, payroll, medical equipment, and supply costs. Dr. Mukanya is the Vice-president and co-founder of Congo Lotus Care.
