The community of Luhonga is a rural village approximately two hours outside Goma in mineral-rich Masisi territory in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Luhonga is, in essence, an informal refugee camp. Hands at Work is caring for 70 children in the village of Luhonga, though there are still many children in this area who are in desperate need of support.
Please pray: When people get sick with illnesses like Malaria it is difficult to have access to a clinic as the nearest clinic is about a two hour walk away and the road is difficult to walk and unsafe. Pray for medical treatment to become available. Thankfully, Joseph, one of our teachers in the school, has a bicycle and when our children are sick and in need of medical attention he cycles our children to the clinic. Pray for the safety of Joseph and the children as he cycles them to the clinic. Pray that our children will receive the medical care that they so desperately need.
