Uvira Mental Health Center was born out of the desire of wanting to help the forgotten people with mental illnesses in eastern Congo to access the services they desperately need. It is a first-of-its-kind project seeking to address the mental health needs for the people traumatized by decades of violent conflict in the territories of Uvira, Fizi and Walungu (kamanyola) where services are currently non-existent in order to help relieve suffering and transform lives.

Espoir Kyubwa moved from his native country of the Democratic Republic of Congo to the United States at a young age amidst civil war in Rwanda spilling into the country. Fast forward 20 years and he is now looking to help the country he left years earlier through his research. Espoir is helping his uncle Amede Kyubwa, who has been working in community-orientated mental health services in Sacramento over the last 15 years, to open a clinic in 2017 to help those in the country struggling with mental illness from the constant fighting that has occurred over the years. With a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering and as a current medical student, he hopes to one day better bridge the gap between science, technology and patient care, especially relating to global health.
