Young Girl Has a Home at Mpila Orphanage in Congo

 Africa Imports pays for three meals a day for over 100 orphan children in the Mpila orphanage in Congo. We can't do this without your purchases, and as a thank you we'd like to tell you about this young girl who has found a home there. One of our friends who runs the orphanage had this to say about Immaculée: "This young lady's name is Immaculée. She has been at the Mpila Orphanage since the age of 6 months. Both her Mom and Dad died, and she was given to a grandma that then became incapable of caring for her. She is in school and doing well. She has such a tender heart and is so attentive during Bible time." Thank you for caring about African products. The sales of African products not only helps the craftspeople in Africa, but we couldn't help support places like the Mpila orphanage without you.
