Christian Efforts Help Congo Heal Amid Armed Conflict

Ad Feedback

Christian humanitarian relief efforts in eastern Congo are moving forward despite military gains by armed rebels.

An anti-government militia called M23 recently seized territory in Goma.

Jon Cassel, CBN's director for French speaking Africa, said the ministry is partnering with a hospital and area churches to give Congolese urgent medical care.

"A group of Congolese pastors that are in charge of locating patients in the rural areas that are the most distressed and seeing that they are informed of what CBN is doing and then they can bring them in to the Heal Africa clinic and be served," Cassel said.

CBN also helps run a safe house in Goma for orphaned and sexually abused girls.
