University of Kinshasa Hospital, December 2012
Congo Lotus Care is planning on opening a small clinic that will offer :
Quality care and exceptional customer service
Clean exam rooms and modern equipment
Ultrasounds and Checkups
And various other maternal and reproductive health services
The services will be offered by Dr. Mpalata Mukanya, an experienced Congolese-American OB/GYN who is ARDMS (American Registered Diagnostic Sonographer) certified.
We are working to raise $95,000 for the women's clinic. If you would like to help us start the clinic, please visit the Donate/Get Involved page.
A picture is worth a thousand words….To get an idea of what many hospitals and health centers look like in the DR Congo, review the gallery of snapshots that were taken in December 2012. Some of the problems encountered:
Dirty rooms and beds
Patients often have to bring their own syringes and medication to be treated.
Nurses and Doctors are not paid, as a result, patients are often kept in hospitals and clinics until their families can pay their fees.
Goal : $95,000
We opened the first clinic in the summer of 2013. See the video.
