Another School Year Has Arrived!

None

September saw the beginning of the new school year on the campus of the Patmos Children’s Village on Idjwi.  The children are eager to learn and our school is bustling with activity.  The current enrollment is: 68 in primary school, 69 in secondary school, 5 in university and 4 in trade school training.

Finances are very limited this year as donations are down.   Unless more funding comes in soon, we will have to ask the 5 university students to cease their education at this point.  They will be discharged with uncertainty if they will be able to return.

Medical Supplies Arrive from Canada

Recently a container arrived from Canada with much needed medical supplies and equipment. It was immediately unloaded and put to use at the Goma Medical Centre. PROLASA Canada is currently preparing for the shipment of yet another container. This one also will contain medical supplies and equipment as well as things much needed for the university (UNILAI) as well.
