The Centre de Lutte Contre la Malnutrition de Lemba (Center for the Fight Against Malnutrition in Lemba) is located on avenue Mambu N°20, in the settlement of Kinsundi-Lemba, Bas-Congo province. It is 40 km fr om the port town of Boma in the south west of the Democratic Republic of Congo and 540 km fr om Kinshasa. The settlement of Kinsundi-Lemba is home to 21,935 inhabitants including 3,729 children aged up to 59 months. The majority of the population farms, while the remainder is made up of traders, teachers, craftsmen and the unemployed. The creation of the center began on September 11, 2009 on the initiative of Georges Nicks Tsimba, senior ophthalmologist and nutritionist at the NGO Foyer d’Encadrement pour le Développement FEDASBL. He had the excellent idea to set up a health facility to combat malnutrition and its effects on vulnerable people (children and others).
