Punlaan School Fundraising Going Strong
When I was asked to help LINCCO, I chose Punlaan School because of the excellent personal experiences of people close to our family.

LINCCO’s project in the Philippines provides transportation and school supply scholarships to young girls of limited means, allowing them to take hospitality and culinary classes at Punlaan School which is renowned for the quality of its training.
This spring and summer, successful fundraisers were held in Toronto and Ottawa. LINCCO thanks Henry Young and his team in Toronto, and Louise Gay and Patricia Klambauer of Ottawa, for making these fundraisers such a success. We look forward to more successful fundraisers in coming months.

Institute for Advanced Nursing Studies Celebrates First Graduation Class of its Master's Program in Health Administration
We thank especially Professor Marie Hatem and all the team that directed the project, along with LINCCO for having understood that the goal of improving the quality of health in general and maternal and infant health in particular in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) must begin with an upgrade to the skills of health professionals."

Master’s in Health Administration
Marie Hatem, a nursing professor in Montreal, spearheaded the development of a new program over the past four yearsthe first of its kind in DRC. Speaking at the graduation ceremony in August, she described leaving the home base of LINCCO in Canada to embark on this challenge with the Institute for Advanced Nursing Studies, which has a reputation for overcoming obstacles. She encouraged the graduates to now lead other students to a new level of professionalism, thereby bringing better health care throughout the DRC.
Building on Success in the Democratic Republic of Congo
LINCCO is extending its projects at the Institute for Advanced Nursing Studies to improve the basic training of health care workers and make the Master’s Program in Health Administration a permanent part of its courses. There is a dire need for health care professionals in the country and LINCCO is addressing this by training highly competent nurses.
