Ok so we are back in Kinshasa, DR Congo where for the last 3, nearly 4 years we have been supporting the children, covering living expenses like food supplies, medical bills and school fees.
The last major work we did in the area was the refurbishment of the Medical Centre round the corner which you can see here....
Now, the children at our orphanage need some extra support. This is right outside where they live which is basically a garbage dump, when it rains it flows into their home, we want to clean it up.
There's currently not enough beds for children, most of them share, this is because their roof is leaking which has ruined the old bed frames and mattresses, so we need to fix that and get them enough beds to sleep on.
Because of the leaks, their electrics need completely redoing and switched over to solar power so they never need to worry about the local grid going down again.
They need a proper kitchen. They are having problems with getting clean water and sanitation issues so we are going to tackle all of this.
We need to raise £42,000 ASAP, it basically works out at £1000 per child at the orphanage. @iheartafricadotorg will continue to pay school fees, medical bills and pay for their food, but we need some support to give them an better quality of life.
Thank you for your love and support; we will document the clean up and renovations as they happen.
