Three of the PROLASA Canada team have just returned from a 10-day visit to the Democratic Republic of Congo. Dr. Barry taught a course in Human Ecology at the University of Idjwi (UNILAI) from April 7 through 11 while Melissa, PROLASA Canada’s new Development Director was able to get to know the team in Congo and Daniel was able to address the erosion problem at the Patmos Children’s Village, do some more work with the improved stove project and he was also able to do some photo documentation of the many projects on the Island of Idjwi.
