" Do small things with great love." Mother Theresa
Doctor Sylvere Malonga, a physician in DuPage County, Illinois, was born and raised in Brazzaville. He recently spent several months in the Notre Dame Mission with Sister Brigitte Yengo and made this video which documents all the programs she, her staff and volunteers provide to the community.
Sister Yengo's Children are the orphaned, the handicapped, the homeless in the Republic of Congo.
Sister Brigitte Yengo, along with several other sisters and volunteers, provides a safe and loving home to about 50 of these orphans, ranging in age from a few weeks to nine years old.
Polio is still a scourge in Africa. For many people afflicted with the aftermath of polio, a wheelchair provides not only mobility, but also a sense of freedom and a job because these wheelchair bikes in turn are made by handicapped people.
The Mission also contains a chiropractic medical clinic and rehabilitation and occupational programs for the blind and disabled.
As National Director of the Special Olympics program in the Congo, Sister Brigitte Yengo brings a great sense of accomplishment and self-worth to her special needs athletes.
