Kinshasa, April 21nd, 2021 (CPA).- The general president of the Union of parents of deaf children of Congo (UPESC), Ernest Mukelenge Wa Bafwa, launched, on Tuesday, during an interview with CPA, an urgent appeal for help to all its educational partners including the government, Kinshasa city, Save the Children, Oxfam and UNESCO to financially and materially support the “La Joie” School,

The School « La Joie », a school for deaf mutes located in Kimbanseke municipality. Was founded in 1989, under his initiative and the parents of deaf children, following the closure of three classes in the section for the hearing impaired due to lack of reception infrastructure at the center for the disabled in N’djili, the only center in this time in the eastern part of the capital of DRC.

For him, this work of his NGO suffered significant damage after the last rains that fell in the capital, saying that the roof of the toilets, acquired with funding from Oxfam was washed away. In addition, some crooked individuals and without titles strive to despoil this land that the municipality and the town hall of Kinshasa had made available to its NGO for the benefit of disabled and vulnerable people.

He deplored the behavior of a teacher, yet housed in the school building, who allowed himself to sell sewing machines and other school property, going so far as to bring UPESC to justice to claim his final statement.

 « This school operates with all official documents, in its own facilities, with the authorization of the municipality and the city governor to help this category of underprivileged children, » he concluded. ACP/
