Wayne works with IMA World Health in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He serves as the in-country finance officer for several health projects and manages the DEVRU project, which helps Congolese fight starvation with disease resistant and high protein food crops and helps Congolese farmers generate income for many decades with a new variety of palm tree that produces abundant oil. Katherine works with Congolese Christian health professionals and grass-roots community leaders. Their goals are to reduce Congo’s maternal and child mortality rates by growing solutions to common health problems using cooperation, local resources and the word of God. Katherine also coordinates White Cross efforts and support for the network of Baptist hospitals and health centers.
