Six months ago, supporters like you did something incredible. Over 700 people donated to help build a new fistula facility in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

We are excited to report that construction is well underway! Please enjoy the photos below from our partner, HEAL Africa.

After demolishing an existing building, workers excavate the site and prepare to lay a new foundation.

Raw building materials are delivered to the construction site: cinderblocks (pictured), wood, piping, concrete mix, and more.
Walls are erected, and the operating theater and hospital rooms begin to take shape. Electricity and plumbing are also installed.
