Thanks to all the support and generous donations to Congo Orphans Trust we have managed to be able to buy Mamma Noella a sewing machine so she can make clothes to sell and generate money to buy food for the orphans that she looks after.
Here is a photo of Mamma Noella checking out her new sewing machine!
Her first task is to make school uniforms for all the children from the blue and white material that we also bought her. She doesn't have long as the children go back to school soon!
If you would like to make a donation to Congo Orphans Trust so we can continue to help orphanages in the Congo to support themselves by starting projects like this then visit our website at www.congoorphanstrust.org.

Following my trip to Congo earlier this year, I have spent the last few months creating a non-profit organisation called 'Congo Orphans Trust'. This organisation will continue to raise awareness of the situation for orphans in the Congo as well as provide more information about the projects we are working on and how people can get involved and help us.
Today I am very pleased to announce that the website for the organisation has finally been launched!
Please visit our new website to find out more about the organisation, the situation in the Congo, where and how we are helping orphans and how you can donate supplies or sponsor an orphan online.
Over the next few weeks I'll be posting more information about upcoming fundraising events that you can get involved in or donate money to and as always, will be posting regular updates of how we are changing lives for orphans in DRC.
Thanks for all the support!
