Kinshasa Clean-Up & Refurbishment

For the last 3.5 years we have been supporting the children in Congo DRC, Kinshasa, covering living expenses like food supplies, medical bills and school fees. However as always the children at our orphanage need some extra support. One of our current missions is to embark on a major clean up of the water system that surrounds the area where the children stay. As you can see from the images there is a large problem with waste which in turn when it rains rises significantly. We also aim to do a number of renovation works at the centre which will entail fixing the roof to avoid leaks, install a fully functional kitchen and improve sanitation such as new toilets, showers and a fit for purpose water system to allow for clean running water.

 

With your help we have had 9 new showers and toilets plumbed fitted in to the main rooms and corrected the guttering. Whilst provided new beds and bedding for the children and have managed to continue to ensure the children are fed, are in education and have access to medical needs, however there is still more we need to do to provide them with a better quality of life.
