Making A Difference: Meet Dorcas




Dorcas is 11 years old. She is from the other Congo – the Democratic Republic of Congo. Their house was destroyed in the March 4th explosions but because they are not citizens they have no rights nor will they be recompensed for losses. They are living in an abandoned house. The base of the house is sand – sand that never fully dries, near their home is drainage from surrounding areas full of human excrement and trash. Her parents are both living. Mireille said they are living in extreme poverty – the mother makes beer to sell. Today they got chicken – they love chicken!!
