The community of Itula, located in the lost valley of Shabunda, more than 3000 kilometres from the capital city Kinshasa, is no longer being left behind. It took the community 20 days to clear a section of forest and help create a helipad to deliver emergency reproductive health kits to the once isolated and deprived Itula Hospital. Deployed by UNFPA, the kits could not have come at a better time for Danielle, who gave birth safely that night. Watch the heart-warming story of this young woman and her community.
