BENEFITING: MEDICAL BENEVOLENCE FOUNDATION
Women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo are regularly abused -- physically, sexually and emotionally -- as a weapon in the civil war there that has taken more lives (5 million!) than any war since WWII.
A women's health center is being built in the central city of Kananga where women can be given modern, high quality health care.
More importantly in a country where people cannot afford to pay what it costs to run such a facility, 25% of everything raised for the construction will be set aside in a trust fund whose earnings will help continue to pay for operating costs INDEFINITELY!
