Our cousin Kabena Tshiji Aimerance passed away on October 11, 2018, in Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), following complications after a routine surgery.
Her husband had died 2 years ago while crossing the street (a car ran him over and left him dead); they have left 5 children, Luvungu, Yanza, Tshaba, Mayamba, and Kabengele who is only 4 years old. Unfortunately no one in the family in the DRC has the means to take these children in, and they will have to stay with their grandparents who have no income.
We are raising funds to assist with the hefty medical bills which were incurred as a result of Kabena's hospitalization, and to ensure that these children have a chance at a normal childhood, at receiving an education, and not being forced into the world of child labor.
We thank you in advance for any contribution that you can make.
