About the Jeremie Project Congo
How our Name came about
Everything started with Jeremie. November 2017 during an outreach in the Chahi-Hospital, Democratic Republic of Congo, we had to operate the small 14 year old boy.
After his recovery, he was not allowed to leave the hospital because the costs could not be paid by his parents. He almost got discharged from school because the school does not tolerate long absenteeism. ...
About Patrick and Tabea Riziki
We are an international couple of doctors
We got married in September 2018 and have a daughter. Our common history began almost at the same time as the JeremieProjectCongo - because it has always been on both of our hearts to work our profession - our calling - for the poorest of the poor. Linked to our Christian faith and missionary commitment, we work in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to enable education - to give hope - to build the future.
There is only one thing
which is more expensive in the long run than education
- no education.

Donations that change the world
Thanks to a donation, Jeremie was able to leave the hospital and go back to school. I have long known that schooling is important in order to give children a future and hope.
I want to achieve a domino effect:
After school education and training / studies, a child can feed his family significantly better and also help younger siblings to also get a school education
The Democratic Republic of the Congo has approx. 79 million inhabitants / 2.3 million km². There is one doctor for every 10,000 inhabitants.
In Germany there is one doctor for every 280 inhabitants.
More than half of the population lives on less than US $ 1 a day.
The literacy rate is 62%, in Germany it is over 99%.
Bukavu has more than 1.5 million inhabitants. (Internet data of> 800,000 inhabitants are no longer up-to-date due to rural exodus)
This city is in the far east of the country on the border with Rwanda. The Chahi Hospital is right where the poorest of the poor live:
- Overcrowded streets, many broken families, unemployment, many street children. As a result, there is a high rate of violence and sexual abuse, as well as orphans or children who are abandoned by their parents.
