BNA ---> FIH (Congo) Miles Advice

I have a friend from church who is trying to get to the Congo to see his mother who is in poor health. He fled his home country during the Civil War in the 90's. I've trying to use my miles to help him get home.

Here are my balances:
AmEx MR 250,000
British Airways 240,000
American 175,000
US Air 70,000

Here are his preferred dates:
Depart BNA June 15 or 22
Depart FIH --> BNA July 14 or 21.

I'm looking for coach award travel for 1 passenger. Delta wants 177,500 through Atlanta and Paris, which is a bit steep. I can't find availability on Star Alliance using United and Aeroplan search tools, and OneWorld doesn't service FIH as best I can tell.

Retail price is $2200 all in so 100,000 miles is probably my ceiling to spend.

Thanks in advance for any pointers.
