Baby Valerie Finds A Home At Moukondo Orphanage

10/28/2010 16:46


At Africa Imports, a percentage of the money we make goes towards supporting the Moukondo Orphanage in Congo. We pay for the cost of meals and expenses for about 200 orphan children. Here’s what a friend of ours who works with the orphanage said when she sent us this photo: "Valerie was found on the 8th of June this year. She was found in one of the huge waste dumping bins in the neighborhood of Mpila. Nothing else is known." We urge you to continue to keep orphans like Valerie in your thoughts and prayers. While many children are abandoned because their mothers have no way to support them, there are also hundreds of thousands of children in the Congo that have been left without parents because of the civil war. There are millions of orphaned children in Africa due to wars, natural disasters, AIDS, malaria and other diseases. Less than 1% of foreign orphans will ever be adopted.
