Mamma Noella’s orphans go to school!

Hi all,

I'm sorry for the lack of updates over the last month but taking on a new full time job has meant that I have very little spare time to update the blog. That doesn't mean that we haven’t been busy helping orphans in the Congo though, in fact, we have been incredibly busy buying school supplies for Mamma Noella's orphans, paying their school fees and enrolling them in primary and secondary school.

Thanks to my friend Kakule on the ground and our wonderful driver Roger, all of the children at Mamma Noella’s orphanage who are old enough to go to school are now enrolled and attending school thanks to all the generous donations through the sponsorship program.

Here are some photos of the children receiving their school supplies…

Meanwhile, back at Mamma Noella’s orphanage Roda is looking healthier than ever and although she cannot walk unaided yet, she is getting stronger every day thanks to her continued treatment and regular visits to the clinic in Butembo.

Of course, none of this would be possible without your generous donations and continued support so thank you all so much!
