Delegate Spotlight: Fidel Nshombo

Fidel Nshombo returned to Democratic Republic of Congo for the first time in 20 years. He traveled to his hometown of Bukavu last year to connect with family he hadn’t seen since he was 12. Fidel took with him good wishes as well as donations from his Boise friends. After his visit, Nshombo is determined to find ways to help the Bukavu community.
