Internally Displaced People outside Goma

The September team to HEAL Africa this year consisted of a Plastic Surgeon, Anaesthetist and Dentist – all previous visitors.

The Team took time to visit the IDP camps (Internally Displaced People) outside Goma where nearly 90,000 are housed in temporary shelters. HEAL Africa Hospital has an outreach clinic to these people who we were able to review. Over 300,000 Congolese have been displaced by the M23 rebels in North Kivu since April this year. Patients were able to be taken from the IDP camp for surgery at HEAL Africa Hospital with the help of AusHEAL funds.
