Women friends around the world are sending buoyant messages of support to Lucy and Linda, as they head for the DRC. Kiran in Sydney included this evocative picture, summing up HandUp Congo’s hopes for the future.
They will meet up with all our Congolese friends in Lotumbe and Kinshasa.
Lucy, who is one of the founders of HandUp Congo, has been working closely with the Australian Congolese community in Sydney. She is carrying a letter to His Excellency Joseph Kabila, on behalf of Australia’s 4000+ Congolese community, asking him to consider establishing a DRC consulate in Australia.
We wish you safe travels!
