The heart and dedication of so many in eastern Congo are a tremendous example for us all.  Saasita is an example of a selfless person committed to serving the neediest.  We first met Saasita in 2006 in Beni during our Healing Streams trauma and rape counselling sessions.  She has been a stalwart ever since.  See her prior work  here and here and here and here and here and here.

We have provided Saasita funding for her training related to female entrepreneurship and general hygiene.  She has travelled to remote parts in order to help us implement microfinance programs, deliver medical equipment and transfer her knowledge to others.  She is truly a blessing.
