Thank you for your financial support for the building of a new multipurpose Day Centre in Lubumbashi. This is by far the most ambitious project that Kimbilio has undertaken but we believe that it will transform the help that we can provide to the children forced to live on the streets of Lubumbashi. They will be offered food, medical care, clean water & the opportunity to find their families if this is possible & safe. The new Day Centre will also include a hair dressing salon for teenage mums trained by Kimbilio and a shop for those we've trained in sewing skills to sell their work to provide an income for their families.
I reported last time that the land for the new Day Centre had been purchased and the bricks prepared. We are now in the process of raising sufficient funds so that we can commence the building of the first stage of the Day Centre. We hope to be able to start building in Spring 2024.
The Congolese team of carers in Lubumbashi are so committed to helping the street children and it is heartwarming to see the children with smiles on their faces after receiving food and drink and having an opportunity to talk with the carers about the reasons that led to them living on the streets.
