Project Report | Jun 25, 2018
Sibling Solidarity

By Eva Walters | Fundraising Manager

The usual route for many of the girls that we are able to give a loving home to is via Centre Kimbilio. Centre Kimbilio is a safe place for street children to come for food, clothes and support. Most children will just come in and fall straight to sleep because they know they are somewhere safe and won't be harmed while they sleep. But in May this year, a little girl came in to ask for help. Her two year old brother was carried carefully on her back. 

The girl told staff their parents had had an argument and had abandoned them on the streets. Families are under such pressure that they leave their precious children to fend for themselves. The impact on these young lives is immeasureable.

Kimbilio was able to give these children a loving home. Due to his age and the strong bond he has with his sister, these young siblings are being cared for together at Transit Filles (the girls' transitional home). With local social workers, Kimbilio staff are making enquiries in the area to endeavour to find the parents and if possible work towards reuniting them with their children. 

Until then the children are settling in to their new home with new friends and carers. They are enjoying being part of a family and being cared for. 

So thank you. It is your support that allows us to provide a loving home for vulnerable street children. Please don't forget us on July 18th when GlobalGiving will be running their Rewards Bonus Day. There will be $120,000 in matching funds and bonus prizes available. It runs from 9:00am to 11:59pm EDT (that's 2pm to 4:49am GMT) on Wednesday July 18th. See www.globalgiving.org for full terms and conditions. If you are able please consider supporting one of Congo Children Trust's projects:
