New medical faculty inaugurated

New medical faculty inaugurated

The new building for the medical faculty at l’Université Evangélique en Afrique (UEA) is now inaugurated. It is situated just next to Panzi Hospital and has a capacity of over 300 students.
The Minister of Higher Education in DRC, Mashako Mamba, said this is the second medical university of this standard in the country, and that it shows the significance of Cepac’s (Communauté des Eglises de Petnecôte en Afrique Centrale) role as an actor in the society. He also highlighted that it is time for Panzi Hospital to become a university hospital.
- When a country has a lot of darkness it is important to think about the future of our youth, this is a good thing and an investment for the young people in Congo, says Dr Denis Mukwege.
- This fall we will start a research program at the medical faculty together with sister universities such as Sahlgrenska (Sweden), Michigan, Toulouse and Milan. With immediate access to the hospital I think our both institutions will gain from this close collaboration, says Gustave Mushagalusa Nachibera, principal of UEA.

Representatives from Germany, who funded the building through EED, South Korea, USA and Sweden participated in the ceremony.

    I am so grateful for your work and the hope it gives So many, myself included. I live in Canada, a country where it should be easy enough to be made whole after aquiring a rvf. But at age 30 I have been given up upon, and have no hope of surgical intervention in this country. The spirit that keeps me alive is the hope that I may someday acquire the funds and somehow earn the right to be made whole in Africa. Whatever help I could be, I would give anything, get anything you need to be made whole and have the hope of a normal life where I can eat, and leave the home and contribute to the world again. Thank you for this slim hope. It keeps me alive. God bless you.

  4. I personally would wish to thank you for all that you have done.Helping the most vulnerable mothers especially in the Democratic Republic of Congo.Above all, for the new medical faculty.It is true that DRC needs people who can transform people’s lives like you.Especially the future generation.

    I am a Congolese by nationality but lives in Uganda as a refugee since 22 December 1998.Having experienced all unkind treatment and violation of human rights of both 1996-1998 and became a refugee, i since then studied hard to become a gynecologist so that i could help women in My country.Unfortunately, i am studying a course of Bachelor of veterinary medicine at Makerere University.After here, if all goes well, i will join human medicine and join you in the struggle.May God protect you in that country as you save people’s lives!
