What the Leja Bulela Annual Conference is all about

Each year, Leja Bulela hosts its annual conference in a different city.  This year, Leja Bulela is going back to where it all started 30 years ago: Detroit, Michigan!  Having used a virtual format since 2020, Detroit marks the first in-person conference since 2019! The conference is our largest fundraiser of the year and the money raised during the conference serves our various initiatives including staffing, maintaining, and improving the services at the Kalala Muzeu Health Center.

Your participation in the annual conference impacts the people of Democratic Republic of Congo in a big way!
