About Dennis & Delia

Rotarian Dennis L Buschman MD grew up in the Belgian Congo as a missionary kid, and, because of his passion for Africa, started education projects in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Two grants were funded for education in the DRC, DCG 52, 2015-16 and DCG 06, 2016-17.

However, due to the danger of working in the DRC, i.e. two bodies of United Nation peacekeeper were found in shallow graves 80 miles from the location we were working in and because Rotary has a travel ban for the DRC, and several additional factors, we decided not to continue working in the DRC, and search for a safer location.

He has a passion for returning to help children in Africa. He is a member of Rotary International (Rotary Club Gig Harbor, District 5020). He has completed 12 District grants and a Rotary Global Grant providing educational supplies to Africa.   Find out more about the RACHEL Project here: https://worldpossible.org
