Created in 2010, CSDD is registered as Canadian charity from 9th July 2010, under number 83612 1855 RR0001, under the Act respecting Canada Corporations.

A painful and worrying observation has marked Drs Weld and Mbongo, members of CSDD from their visit to Kinsenso Matete, a neighboring of Kinshasa, DRC capital. The living conditions of children and families were very bad. The inexistence of waste management services and environmental preservation makes the surroundings a permanent threat for the population especially children.

CSDD is thus born of decision aroused humanitarian conscience from two members, Dr. Howard WELD, dentist based in Ottawa, and Alex MBONGO, Congolese dentist residing in Quebec Pointe Claire, after attending a dental humanitarian campaign Kinshasa in Democratic Republic of Congo in July 2009.

Another painful and worrying observation had marked the visit of the Hôpital reference Kintambo in Kinshasa (DRC) and others social and education institutions visited by the two CSDD members.
