Story number 2 for 14 Jan 2003

(Congo–Kinshasa)–Elsewhere, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a peace accord has evaporated and a humanitarian crisis appears to be spreading. Medical Ambassadors International’s Paul Calhoun says despite renewed fighting, their work in the area continues. “The essence of Community Health Evangelism is that it will be sustainable, by itself, indigenously, because the projects are really owned by the people of the villages. But this was a test that was rather severe, and we were holding our breath.”
Calhoun says their teams report the ministry has expanded to 113 villages, with impact in all areas. He maintains that the future is bright. “We continue to visit and get our headquarters’ people into the area four times a year, but, if that again is thwarted, we still will be able to rely on the fact that this program is community owned, and will not only sustain, but increase.”
