In My Backyard travels to the Democratic Republic of Congo from June 25 to July 03 2018

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), malaria is the main cause of death among children under five. Improving malaria diagnosis, particularly at the community level, increases the number of cases of children that are correctly managed and treated.

In eastern part of the country the disease is “out of control” with many parents letting their sick children die at home because they cannot afford treatment.

Many also cannot go to the hospital just because they cannot afford the price  of treatment and plus the cost of getting there.

IMBY not only will provide vaccines for treatment but will provide clean water via wells and education.
