The Fondazione InSé Onlus has always been very sensitive towards solidarity, especially in Africa, where it has developed a strong knowledge base of the continent's culture and challenges. The foundation has decided to concentrate its efforts in one single direction: support of the Pediatric Hospital of Kimbondo and the community that has been built around it. This can be achieved by accompanying this community through a stepwise journey towards being fully autonomous.
The story of Kimbondo started off at the Pediatric Hospital, which was founded at the end of the 1980's by the doctors father Hugo Rios and Laura Perna. Its principal aim is to provide medical assistance to street children and children being abandoned due to the "Ndoki believe" (children possessed by demons). Today the hospital accommodates more than 800 children and, with the help of four Congolese doctors, any illness that does not need surgery cured locally. But above all, the hospital has become a mediacal institution where the the poorest individuals in the greater Kinshasa area are treated at no cost.
