Come on board for the #CongoCanoeChallenge. Dr. Vera Sistenich talks about the journey the CCC group from Australia is about to embark on.
ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE
Support a team of Australian volunteers, including two Rotarians and two doctors, who are making a 600 km river journey in August 2015. The team is focused on providing medical training to a remote community of 6000 people, accessible only by canoe. We will navigate three mighty rivers in a motorized dugout canoe to work side by side with Congolese community leaders on projects we’ve helped build since 2005.
Training will include:
• Neonatal emergency care
• Ebola prevention
• Family planning
• Trauma management
Cheer on Maureen Burdynski, Chris Coombes, Lucy Hobgood-Brown, Dr Grace Maano and Dr Vera Sistenich! Follow our adventures on http://www.handupcongo.org and facebook.
