40 god Kongo (9)

Verified / 40 years in Congo


Nova Tv / emission Verified

The writer Joseph Conrad once named Congo ‘heart of darkness’. Unfortunately, this phrase still best describes this part of Africa. It’s a damn rich country – full of gold, diamonds, timber, which hasn’t brought any good to its people. Wars and ruthless exploitation in the past 15 years have taken about 5 million lives in Congo.

In this chaos and violence, as a drop of goodness, lives a group of 8 missionaries from Croatia. Despite the danger, sisters Erika Dodic, Romana Bakovic and Blazenka Barun, for almost 40 years are committed to help the poor, to feed the hungry and cure the sick children.
