Here is another story of an orphan girl in Congo who is supported financially by Africa Imports. The information below was sent to us with the girls photo from a woman in Congo who delivers money to the orphanage. This is Cocoa (koh-koh-ah). She is now 5 years of age. She is at the orphanage with a brother and sister. Her Mom had TB and both her Mom and Dad lost their minds (perhaps from syphillis). They were found by a Catholic Sister after being told about this family. All three were stunted in growth both physically and mentally but now are doing much better. They have been unable to keep track of the parents.
