About SANRU:

SANRU is a local non-governmental organisation and Christian faith based Organization. It is headquartered in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo.

Health problems have been a long standing issue in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR Congo). The main health problems include HIV/AidsMalaria, outbreaks of poliocholera, typhoidyellow fever, the Ebola virus, and hemorrhagic fever. HIV/Aids are the most serious health problem in the DR Congo due to the incurable nature of this disease. Furthermore, Tuberculosis has been an ever more serious health concern in the DR Congo.

SANRU was born in 1981 as the result of consecutive projects through the Medical Department of Council of Protestant Churches of Congo. SANRU is a civil NGO operating in the health care field, and especially in rural areas. SANRU owns projects but has no funds. When SANRU sets up a project or multiple projects, it makes regular disbarments from financing institutions.

Since 2000, SANRU has developed a strong partnership with IMA World Heath (Inter-church Medical Aid) of USA Missions.
