A first-of-its-kind Community Mental Health Center to open the doors in Uvira, South-Kivu province in the Democratic Republic of Congo, on December 16, 2016  
 
The center will serve people with mental health disorders in eastern Congo, where various wars, crimes and sexual violence acts are contributing FACTORS TO A HIGH RATE OF MENTAL ILLNESS cases in the region.  It is sad, but in Uvira and surrounding territories of Fizi and Walungu in Kamanyola, families continue to live in total ignorance that mental illness is a medical condition that can be effectively treated. 

We hope in your generosity, you can find a heart to support this initiative for its SOCIO-HUMANITARIAN MISSION.  You can easily support the effort by clicking on this GoFundMe account- https://www.gofundme.com/uviramentalhealth?ssid=774060935&pos=1   established for the PUBLIC opening event.

Detailed information about the Community Mental Health of Uvira can be found on our web site at: wwww.crpduvira.org
 
Thank you in advance for your support to help care for those who are often forgotten in in the community because of their mental condition.

Uvira Mental Health Center will hold its grand opening ceremony for the public on December 10, 2016.
