Bishop Nicolas Djomo of the Democratic Republic of Congo

The Democratic Republic of Congo is the largest country in sub-Saharan Africa. The area has struggled with outbreaks of both Ebola and measles. The province of Kivu has seen broad conflict, as well as the UN’s largest and most expensive peacekeeping mission, which has been in operation since 2010. 

When government and social systems fail, it is often the church that steps in to help the people. 

Host Bill Baker met Bishop Nicolas Djomo in New York to learn about the role the Catholic Church plays in supporting the stability of Congo.
