February 2016 issue
Visit Colombia in this issue of the SDIA network eNews, the first of the year!
SDIA supports a network of 22 national organizations and 33 projects from 27 countries that help human beings reach their full potential.
In the DRC, one in six children dies before the age of five years old, due to highly preventable illnesses, including malaria and infections, so providing communities access to sound treatment and prevention can mean the difference between life and death.
Paul Roberge documents the long journey, supported by so many SD nationals and donors, to buy, transport and put into operation a brick-making machine for SD Congo that will help sustain the organisation and provide low-cost, high quality building materials for SD schools, clinics and hospitals in a country in desperate need of good infrastructure.
