Girls sitting together with Good Friend
One of the greatest privileges we have at Africa Imports is to be part of a program that helps orphans and refugees in Congo. A percentage of each of your purchases goes towards helping these children. Good Friend is one of these programs. With Good Friend, we send representatives to homes where orphaned children are living with extended family. This program helps them to have the food and medicine and counseling they need. Some of these children have one parent alive and are just living in really harsh conditions because of the lack of money available to the family. Good Friend delivers food weekly to these children and then our representative, Brice, makes house calls to make sure they are receiving the food and are getting healthier. Here is a note we received in our email from our representative with Good Friend: "The girl, 3rd to the right on the front bench is named Mersiya. She has a mycosis skin infection that just will not heal. Her mother died and a young lady in the neighborhood took her in, it is not anyone from her own family. Their living conditions are miserable and so that is why her skin condition just goes on and on!!" Please keep Mersiya in your thoughts and prayers along with the other children participating in Good Friend. To find out more about how your purchases help kids in Africa Click Here.
