Abraham Leno

Executive Director, Eastern Congo Initiative

Bio Current as of September 17, 2020

Abraham has spent his whole career promoting health, dignity and joy in the world’s most difficult places — starting in Guinea, where he and his family were refugees themselves. As a humanitarian Leader, Abraham has led humanitarian efforts in Liberia, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Balochistan in Pakistan, and now the Democratic Republic of the Congo. As the DRC country director for Alight (formerly the American Refugee Committee), Abraham helped co-create and implement the revolutionary Asili business model.

Abraham is grateful to have lived beyond survival and now has a family and a home of his own and other people who look up to him. His relief and development work are inspired by memories of this kindness and the generosity of many others. He travels widely throughout the DRC and United States, but he is based in ECI’s headquarters in Bukavu.
