HOW TO REACH JOSEPH MBUNGU NSIESI
A Compass of Faith: A Man’s Journey To America by Joseph Mbungu Nsiesi
Death was sleeping all around us. I could feel her in the high cries of uncomfortable babies and the low moans of old men as they fight the pain and discomfort of dysentery. This would be a trip through hell, and perhaps some unfortunate souls on this boat would make not make it out alive as is often the case on the Congo River. Perhaps, we all knew that some of us wouldn’t all arrive at our destination and that we would meet our Lord, our Maker, here on this black river of death and hope. Death and hope. Can it be one and the same? With this river, the answer is yes. People lived and died under the power of this powerful river every single day. It was now my turn to make this journey on its surface. Despite my deepest fears, I feel the warm breeze of God’s grace lingering around me in the air. Yes, hope is a powerful element in each of our hearts and that is what everyone here now clings onto tightly and with both fists, even if it means kissing death right on the lips.

The Nsiesi’s Foundation was established as a nonprofit organization for the sole purpose of saving millions of lives in the Democratic Republic of the Congo by preventing disease and promoting good health throughout the country. The foundation has been granted 501 (c) (3) status by the United States Internal Revenue Service.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire), is the second largest country in Africa, but also the poorest. It is about a quarter of the size of the United States and is home to 75 million people.
For years, the country has been devastated by war. The country endured more than a decade of civil war, which was the deadliest conflict worldwide since world war II, with over 5.4 million people killed and still the country faces continuing political and economic instability.
The Congolese people have been neglected for years. Medical facilities are severely limited, and medical materials are in short supply.
Malaria is common throughout the Democratic Republic of the Congo; outbreaks of polio, cholera, typhoid, yellow fever, the Ebola virus, and hemorrhagic fever also occur. Tuberculosis is an increasingly serious health concern.
Many insect-borne illnesses are present. Yellow fever is common. Drinking water is often non-chlorinated and promotes the spread of schistosomiasis, the second most socioeconomically devastating parasitic disease after malaria. Although it has a low mortality rate, schistosomiasis often becomes a chronic illness that can damage internal organs and, in children, impair growth and cognitive development
