Story — Journey with us up the Semiliki River!

November 27, 2020Semiliki River, Story

We’re having a very exciting event on Friday 4th December 8 to 9pm. Beat the lockdown blues by joining us in travelling up the Semiliki river and down northeast Congo by road, plane and boat!


Come and meet our partners and hear how your how your support makes such an impact for hospitals, health centres and social projects. And hear how last year’s appeal equipped two operating theatres.

If you’d like to join us please ask Ruth to send you the zoom invite. We’ll start promptly at 8pm so don’t miss the boat!

Looking forward to having you join us on the way!
