Pona Panzi Nº1
A series of localised conflicts have exploded over the past two years in the Congo, following president Joseph Kabila’s failure to organise elections and leave office in December 2016.
the Norwegian Refugee Council recently dubbed Congo the "world's most neglected crisis". however, the Congo has always been in a state of crisis—it has never known peace.
Pona Panzi was created to raise awareness to what is happening in the democratic republic of Congo and raise funds for the Panzi Hospital, a hospital integral to the mental health and well-being of all who are cared for in the city of Bukavu. Read more on the Congo Crisis here and here.
