Since many years we are helping young physicians and nurses professional training, supporting them with scholarships. Thanks to your donation Chiara can now meet valiant co-workers. We hope they themselves will promote further projects and enterprises, in order to improve Bandundu sanitary position.


Besides to be the place where Chiara lives, medicine lessons are carried out in G. Riccio house. Together with Chiara we wish to adapt some of the rooms to realize an operative base camp, the Insieme a Chiara Castellani onlus local branch. With the purpose to lodge voluntaries, to facilitate Chiara work, to create an equipped reference point for site projects and communication. Presently Casa Riccio hasn’t any electricity nor flow water.

G. Riccio House

Every year we collect medicaments, drugs and medical instruments to supply the health centers and the diocesan pharmacies located in our area. In case you work, or if you know somebody working in the sanitary field, or if you want to offer us anything you got, please refer to the following list

Medicaments, drugs and medical instruments Collection

Kenge-Kiwani medical centre became the reference pole in AIDS cure and prevention and provides daily support against undernourishment diseases. The facility isn’t supplied with electricity, running water, or important medical instruments. For this reason Doctor Chiara’s and her staff work can’t be efficient. Together we can achieve a change.


There are villages In Bandundu living in complete isolation, outposts unreachable by transport, lacking of hospitals or primary structures able to grant the right to life. So for many women pregnancy is a challenge, a journey, where they have to walk kilometers searching for a medical centre able to help them. Help us to be present in the country.


In many prisons around the word lack justice, medical care and basic necessities. In 1996 Chiara Castellani highlighted Kenge prison situation. It is a place which hosts about a hundred persons, forced to live in very bad conditions who need medical care. Help us to build up a fist aid station.


 Grazie Amiche e Amici italianiG.RICCIO-G.MAIETTA House

" G.Riccio-Maietta house", so named in honor of those who made the building purchase possible.

It is the place where Chiara lives, and all people taking parts in voluntary works are lodged here.

There are many people who joined Chiara from Italy, to support her with training courses, technical interventions, and different solidarity activities, all people who for short periods met Kenge reality, and know the importance of Riccio House.

A reference point for "Insieme a Chiara Castellani Onlus" that sees in the house the operative branch for all the projects,  as well as a hope island for local people.

Nowadays some minor expedient were carried out, to improve the stay: safety measures, rainwater collection system and equipment of some room.

Riccio House hosts everyday medicine lessons, and it is by now dr. Chiara home.

Help us to fulfill what is necessary to make the house more efficient.
