We want to thank you for the support you have shown to our work.

After several visits to the Kibati community, the Children Hope Forever Team is thrilled to tell you that these past months, we have been able to send 3 kids to school and pay a whole trimester for each.

This decision was based on the fact that after our several visits, we notices that a lot of families are struggling to send the kids back to school since the incident and the loss of farms that were used as primary activity and source of income for the family.

 

We all know that the young generation is the tomorrow's future, and for this reason, our next goal is to be able to school at least 10 Children of Kibati. This community need help for a brighter future.

Except for the kids, We also plan to help the population that is still in need of medicine, clothes, shoes; jackets, school supplies (notebooks, pens, school bags), etc. that's why they always need our help.

We appreciate your donations and encourage you to share with friends, and families so we can all support our brothers and sisters in need.

 

with your support, we have been able to make a difference in the Kibati community

CHILDREN HOPE FOREVER in partnership with FICE (Forum des Intellectuels Congolais de l'Etranger) decided to visit the victims of the eruption of the Nyiragongo volcano, precisely those of Kibati in order to bring a smile to their faces during this period of festivity. This is why they decided to celebrate Christmas with the children of victim families.
The program for the day of December 29, 2021, was to spend the day with the children: playing and sharing the meal with them. On this, we had preparatory activities among other things the purchase of goods, and the distribution of tokens. The distribution of tokens took place two days before the activity. We had sent three members to the disaster camp in Kibati to distribute the tokens to 200 families and each family was entitled to only one token, so one child. This token was used as a right of entry for the children. We were also assisted by the WATOTO WA KIVU group for labor and the king's family, MWAMI BUTITI, who allowed us to bring the children together in his compound, not far from the disaster camp.


For the purchase and the kitchen, the members of FICE and CHILDREN HOPE FOREVER have planned a menu made of juice, Potatoes, Beans, Meat, Rice, Donuts, Cookies, and sweets (for appetizers) For the game, we had played soccer, girls game, nzango, card, etc. we were also able to send some parents with some food stock from what remained that was not cooked ( rice, onions).

Together we planned to help 200 but many more children were able to eat and have fun playing with us.


We were happy to provide what we had, to play with the children, to see their parents smile; but we couldn't help noticing that more was needed in terms of medicine, clothes, shoes; jackets, school supplies (notebooks, pens, school bags), etc. that's why they always need our help. We appreciate your donations and encourage you to share with friends, families so we can all support our brothers and sisters in need.

We thank you for all the kindness you show to people in Kibati / GOMA. 

Together we can are making a huge impact on people's lives

After visiting different sites, villages and camps where the victims of the Nyiragongo eruption moved to, Children Hope forever decided to visit the population of Bushare village On July 18 2021. Bushare village was burnt and 90 percent of the population lost their homes and everything that was in their houses (clothes, beds, kitchen tools, etc.)  In addition, they are now either living in the school compound as the camp build for them did not have enough space for all of them or they are living in neighbor’s compound that survived the incident.

Our choice on Bushare village was because it was one of the few villages where the chef was able to identify his people and gave them chips. He was also able to contact them so that they could gather and talk about the way forward and what they needed urgently. The chips helped to identify them and ensure that help will be provided to the true victims.

 

                                    Children Hope Forever team decided to help with clothes, blankets, shoes as the population was has received help in terms of foods from other organizations, philanthropists,s and the national government. This decision was made after visiting twice the sites to determine what they needed urgently. For this activity, we were able to combine our efforts with some local organizations and groups of youth among which Watoto WA Kivu, Congolese Young leaders, and Love for needy children, as we needed help in distribution.  

 

                                Together we planned to help 25 families to which we gave chips after choosing them randomly from the chef list, but we were able to help more than 50 families in a village of 600 families. We were able to put together 12 boxes full of clothes, 1 box full of duvets/covers, and 30 pairs of shoes. we had clothes for adult men, adult women, teenagers ( boys and girls) as well as young children and babies.

                                 We were happy to provide what we had but we could not help noticing that more is still needed in terms of medications, clothes, shoes; jackets, etc. that is why they still need our help. We value your donations and encourage you to share with friends, families so that we can all support our brothers and sisters in need.

For the coming months, we plan to donate:

  • Facemasks and sanitizes
  • School uniforms, shoes, and books, pens, crayons as kids are resuming school in October.
  • Hygienic supplies (Pads) and medicines: we observed infections of Tunga penetrants, no access to clean water causing a high rate of hydric diseases.
  • Jackets and other clothes and shoes for adults.
  • Foods

We thank you for all the kindness and that you are showing to the village in GOMA. And here are the pictures of our last visits and ongoing activities undertaken to help the victims of the Nyiragongo. Let us keep on improving their lives together.
