Unite at-risk, abused kids w/ safe fam

Two children, ages 11 and 12, are living in danger in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Due to the extreme situation and safety concerns, names or specific details cannot be released. These siblings - brother and sister - became orphans when their father was brutally murdered, followed by their mother passing away from heart complications.

These children have been physically abused, sold, and threatened for years and we finally have an opportunity to end their suffering.

Their aunt escaped to the USA as an Asylee and is now married and an American citizen. She and her husband have secured full custody, by legally adopting the two children, but cannot yet transport them from the DRC to the USA due to expensive fees for adoption, immigration, and legal support.

We are asking for your help to bring these kids to safety and unite them with their adoptive parents in the Pacific Northwest. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated to help this family begin building a brighter future together.

All funds raised directly support bringing these children to the US, aside from this site's processing fees.
