What we need ? £6 a month
What will it do? Provide basic food and schooling for an orphan.
Daniel and Claudine Masumbuko, have a huge task in Oicha, DRC– to support 315 orphans whose parents are lost in fighting. Most of the children are cared for by foster families but they need support to feed the children and get them to school for basic education. The school fees are $33 a year - about a month's wage.
Last year Friends of CME Trust raised £9,000 to fund the need for 200 children up to the end of the June 2017 school year. Testimonies of some in the program can be found here.
With our support, the children received a basic meal of rice and beans, bread and milk. Their teachers noted an improvement in school performance. The children also received trauma counselling and positive effects have been appreciated by their host families
But the need is ongoing, the number of children has increased from 200 to 315.
We would like these children to continue to receive support for the next year.
Friends of CME Trust seeks to relieve poverty in Democratic Republic of Congo by supporting health care and education in the north east of the country. We are a Christian charity believing that God wants to show his love by justice and compassion for the poor and needy.
