Kabinda, Democratic Republic of Congo
Kabinda was the first Community house in Africa, founded in 1982 in the Democratic Republic of Congo in the eastern Kasai region.
The Community was called here by the local bishop to take charge of the general hospital. Little by little our apostolates have diversified: running the hospital, the St. Damien prayer group and youth mentoring center, an outreach to the marginalized and rejected, a nutrition center (nutrition, education, social support, making palm oil, bakery, etc.), not to mention St. Raphael eye clinic which responds to an urgent need of the population.
Kabinda is also a place where volunteers can give of themselves and a place of an overabundant harvest where charity and service radiate the Gospel spirit.
