2010 visit


Visit to post-conflict reconstruction projects in Kinkala (Congo-Brazzaville)

See photos of the visit

From 5 to 10 December 2010, Patrick visited Brazzaville and spent two days in the Kinkala region, where he was taken to see the projects which we have supported through our CD sales.
Members of the regional Caritas branch showed him around:
- the vital water supply system for the Kinkala small-scale farming project (whose main purpose is to train young farmers to set up their own holdings),
- new henhouses (to provide young farners with a new breed of poultry, suited to the region's climate) and new sheep farm in Kinkala,
- digging of new wells in Kinkala and Mansiedi village,
- building work on the new primary school in Madidi village.
