Monthly donations help buy food for Rwese orphans

Thanks to the generous donations of our supporters, this month we were able to send money to Rwese orphanage so they could buy food for the children living there.

As many of you know, Rwese orphanage lost it's international funding last year so we have been trying to help the 50 orphans that live there as much as possible by helping to pay for their school fees and and buying them food as often as we can.

Here are some of the children with bags of rice, beans, soja, potatoes, oil and salt. 


They can't afford luxuries like meat and vegetables. Their staple diet is potatoes and beans. 


And don't forget CASSAVA. They love their cassava in the Congo! 

Made from a root which is ground up to make a power that they mix with water to make a kind of stretchy bread, cassava has to be washed and laid out in the sun for many days until it dries. Huge sheets covered with drying cassava roots is a common sight in the Congo and even the youngest of children know how to make it.



Thanks to everyone who has donated money recently and has enabled us to buy food for these little ones.

If you would like to help by making a donation it's really easy to do. All you have to do is visit our website at www.congoorphanstrust.org. Many of our supporters choose to make a monthly donation. You can give as little or as much as you can afford, even just £1 a month!

What a great way to show that you care.
