Christmas in the Congo

Merry Christmas Everyone!

This year we wanted to make it a special day for as many orphans as we could in the Congo so we raised money to help buy presents and food for the children at Beni orphanage.

The children loved their gifts and enjoyed playing football in the sunshine...

After all that playing they sat down for a Christmas day feast...

Thanks to everyone who donated money to make this a Christmas to remember for these orphans. We really appreciate your support! xx

Congo Orphans Trust delivers water filters to schools in Beni

Our water filter project is going so well that we have now given water filters to orphanages and medical clinics all over Beni. To ensure that orphans and other children have access to clean drinking water all day long we recently donated water filters to pre schools, primary schools and secondary schools throughout Beni and are continuing to make more filters so we can make sure that every school in Beni has clean safe drinking water for the children that live there.

The first schools to receive water filters were Madrandele pre-school, Mapambazuko primary school and Kanzuli primary school.

Here are some photos of the children at school when the water filters arrived...

Already our next batch of water filters are ready to go...!!

Thanks to everyone who donated to Congo Orphans Trust and helped make this project a reality.
