We are delighted to inform you that the Christmas 2022 project, the Casa Marco Simoncelli Park at Coriano, Rimini, Italy, has already been completed and opened.
In fact, thanks to your joint contribution, the residents at the Casa di Marco, people living with serious disabilities, can engage in outdoor activities, fundamental for their mental and physical wellbeing, and have fun with the inclusive play equipment installed in the Park.
During 2024-2025, with all your help, we will be able to construct the fourth building of the CENTRE HOSPITALIER DE KALALA-DIBOKO in Kalala-Diboko and Musefu Community, Kasai Central, Diocese of Luiza, in the Republic of Congo.
The centre is located in an area completely cut off from outside amenities because it stands between two large rivers, the Lulua and the Luiza, which have no bridges and can only be crossed in dugout canoes.
The hospital went into service in August 2023 with three buildings housing the operating room, the labour room, the lab for medical tests, the radiology unit and various clinics, opened with aid from the World Health Organisation (WHO).
The fourth building, which we are planning to construct, will be the hospital’s largest at 224 sq.m. plus verandas and will house the in-patient ward and paediatrics unit.
Only the bare walls have so far been built and the works to complete it are absolutely essential for the proper functioning of the hospital. The area’s population of about 45 thousand people currently die not only of diseases which would not be serious if promptly treated but also of childbirth and appendicitis, since they are unable to reach the nearest hospital on foot.
With best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, a heartfelt thank you to all stakeholders for supporting this great project.
