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.


Health center for prevention of AIDS and undernourishment based diseases

Here tank to Dream project, ChiaraCentro-Dream-Kenge-Kiwanicarries out her battle against AIDS, making the patients aware about the use of condom and the usage of medicines which operate against the disease progress.

Medicines obtained after many years of obstacles, that are at least approachable.

During the last years Chiara worked hardly to bring inside the structure medical instruments an equipments apt to grant health care. The to be done work is so far a lot. For this reason "Insieme a Chiara Castellani Onlus" made this project a priority.

The building lacks of flow water or electricity, and is poorly equipped with the instruments essential for an efficient health care.

The proximity to Riccio House makes this place very important for Chiara, who carries out there medical examinations and training courses.

We need funds to install solar panels (photovoltaic) which can assure operation to diagnostic instruments, to realize a rain water collection system, to supply the place with advanced instrument, to furnish the rooms to ease patients’ stay.

Some picture show the building state, some maintenance works, and the medical staff.
