UPDATE: The Paris Marathon has been cancelled due to Covid-19 therefore, we're re-thinking our Run For Hope fundraising drive for the clinic on Idjwi. Please bear with us as we navigate this challenging time and work out the best way forward to help with operating the clinic.

The people of Idjwi Island (DRC) urgently need a maternity and paediatric clinic. In 2017/18 alone, 17 pregnant women from Idjwi drowned crossing Lake Kivu trying to get to Rwanda or Bukavu seeking maternity services. The alternative route being a 50km journey over the mountains on foot or motorbike on broken roads.

 

In October ’19 Grant Lang (Mozzo’s founder) visited Rebuild Women’s Hope Cooperative, one of Mozzo Coffee’s C2C Fund™ partners, located on Idjwi Island and was left in no doubt about the need for a maternity and paediatric clinic.  The clinic will fight against maternal complications and the loss of babies as well as providing vaccinations and preventing disease. 

 

 

Your support is needed! Stay tuned for how you can get involved and help raise funds for this much needed cause.
