Congo Orphans Trust delivers clean water and food to orphans in the Congo

Thanks to our supporters who make monthly donations to Congo Orphans Trust, we have been able to buy 2 more water filters from our water filter project which means that children at 2 more orphanages in the Congo now have access to clean drinking water and children at Rwese orphanage have received another delivery of food!

The water filters were donated to Paida orphanage and Oicha orphanage in Beni. Here are some photos from Paida orphanage:

Photos from Oicha and Rwese to follow.

Thanks to everyone who continues to support Congo Orphans Trust in helping orphans in the Congo.
