Porridge project for malnourished orphans

We have recently become involved in a project set up by our local friend Dr Musubao to feed high calorie porridge to malnourished orphans at a medical clinic in the town of Butembo.

There are more than 300 orphans in this town that need help but funds are low meaning they aren't always able to source enough porridge and orphans are having to go without.

We have just made a small donation to provide them with enough porridge for the next week or so but we desperately need to raise more money to help keep this project going.

If anyone can spare even just £1 then it could make a massive difference to these orphans. Please visit our website to make a donation.

Thanks x

Conflict in Eastern Congo and a little boy saved...

Recent weeks have sadly seen a huge amount of conflict in eastern DRC, particularly in and around Beni which is a town where I spent a lot of time and also in Kasindi at the border with Uganda which was the place where I slept for 1 night before crossing from Uganda to the Congo.

The conflicts is part of the contined war in DRC between the army and rebel groups. During this time our priority has been the children living in the orphanages and all of our funds have gone to providing food for them so they can remain safe and cared for.

Sadly 1 child is known to have died during these attacks and another girl was kidnapped.

The situation is now reported to be safe in Beni although attacks can happen at any time as rebel groups are still in the area.

On a positive note, we were recently contacted by one of our colleagues in Beni who had found an orphan boy called Jospin who was living in a village where his mother and father had both been killed. He needed urgent medical care as well as food and clothes. With support from our donors we were able to send funds to provide the necessary care for Jospin and also arranged for a water filter to be installed in the village.

This is a photo of him when he was found...

More photos of Jospin to follow...

As always, if anyone would like to make a small donation to help orphans in the Congo then please visit our website

Food delivery to Beni orphans... and puppies!!

We recently sent a donation to our contacts in Beni so they could buy food to take to the new orphanage in Beni that is providing a home to orphans of the recent massacres.

These children have been left with nothing after losing their parents but amazingly still have love in their hearts as they have recently rescued 2 stray puppies. 

These orphans thank you for your generous donations and ask for your continued support.

Donations to buy food, medical care and school fees for these orphans can be made at

Every little helps xx
