This is how we are since the March 10 health tsunami. The disease started in Kinshasa through people arriving from abroad: France, Belgium, USA; and then it spread among the population. Kinshasa is the third largest megalopolis in Africa, with 12 and a half million inhabitants who live mostly in unhealthy cities. The situation is worsening because 15 days ago, there were three cases; but this has now gone up to 45 -- and that is a lot. To date, one person has been cured, and three have died.
Twenty RSCJ from twelve countries have met in Sophie’s birth place for a six-week Renewal Programme.
