In 2010, the problems affecting road travel from Bandundu to Dima were addressed. A major attempt to fix the bridges and swamp areas on the route was successful and the road is now passable with light vehicles. In addition, the local maternity ward, which serves a community of approximately 2,500 people in Dima village, was upgraded and reopened on 1 November 2012.
