Nearly every minute of every day, one woman or girl in Congo is raped.

You answered that need. Thanks to the generosity of our entire community, including the Vladimir and Araxia Buckhantz Foundation, the Dillon Henry Foundation, the Arnow Family Foundation and many individuals, families and synagogues, JWW provided funding to build this facility and train its staff of 40 community health workers, 32 nurses, 30 traditional birth attendants, 3 surgical nurses, and a lab technician, anesthesiologist and medical doctor. Today women and girls in Chambucha finally have access to the medical care they have needed for many years.

With your support, we can continue to help keep the doors open to this vitally important resource.
