The Friends of IMCK was organized to support the work of the Institut Médical Chrétien du Kasai (IMCK) located in Tshikaji, Democratic Republic of Congo. Founded in 1954, IMCK – consisting of the Good Shepherd Hospital, clinics, and nursing schools – provides vital services to the people in this region. Good Shepherd Hospital is rated as one of the top hospitals in DR Congo. Read more about the great work of IMCK.
A key component of our support efforts is the establishment of a permanent IMCK Endowment Fund whose proceeds will help stabilize the operating income for IMCK. The struggle to remain solvent in a very challenging environment is ongoing. The Christian witness IMCK provides to patients, students and staff is inspirational and critically needed for the spiritual health of the community they serve.
