Responding to Needs

By Andrew Mullens | Kimbilio Support

Thank you so much for your financial support for this Kimbilio Project which helps girls who, through no fault of their own, find themselves living on the streets of Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic girl of Congo. 

Last month, the Kimbilio team of carers responded to a young girl who appeared at the Day Centre with severe abdominal pains. Kimbilio paid for an emergency operation and the girl is now recovering well. 

Usually, girls living on the streets come to the Day Centre for food and drink, washing facilities, medical care and the opportunity to talk through their situation with carers. The streets are a dangerous place for young girls and the Kimbilio team can provide temporary or longer-term accommodation for those most at risk. We currently have twenty-eight girls living in Kimbilio houses.

The girls can receive education at the new Kimbilio School so that they are not at a disadvantage to those for more stable backgrounds. Art is always popular with the girls as it allows them to express themselves through painting and make up.
