The Banro Foundation, together with Banro's Namoya development team, underwrote the cost of transporting six tons of medical equipment - Sept 10, 2012

A Congolese women's NGO, Secours aux Femmes Victimes de Violence Sexuelle et aux Orphelins, did a tremendous job of collecting new medical equipment for use in the province of Maniema, but lacked funding to ship it from Kinshasa to Kindu. The Banro Foundation, together with Banro's Namoya development team, underwrote the cost of transporting the six tons of medical equipment to Maniema Province. The arrival of the equipment was celebrated in a public ceremony in Kindu, Maniema's capital city, on September 10, 2012.
