Kimbilio Primary School under construction Feb2021
We have been priveleged to support Shaki's amazing work with children in Kinshasa over the last two years. She has been making a tremendous difference to the lives of the children she has been supporting in her home. We have come to the end of the time we agreed to support Shaki for. We understand Shaki has been able to access alternative funding and our involvement is coming to an end. We do wish Shaki all the best with her amazing work.
Congo Children Trust remains active with it's work supporting the Kimbilio project for street children in Lubumbashi and is excited to announce that we will be opening a new outreach centre for street children in Kolwezi a large mining town in Lualaba Province. We are also close to finishing buidling a primary school for former street children in Lubumbashi and children whose parent's aren't able to afford to send their children to school. We hope to welcome the first pupils in September this year!
We'd be delighted if you'd consider continuing to support our other projects via GlobalGiving.
Shaki's work supporting some of the most vulnerable children in Kinshasa continues despite the increasing challenges of a 2nd wave of coronavirus in the city. There are concerns about the increasing death rate in the capital. This week the UK banned flights from DRC in an effort to prevent the spread of the new variant from South Africa which appears to be more transmissible and has appeared in other countries in southern Africa including Zambia. Without Shaki's help the children she supports would be on the streets and vulnerable to the increasing risk of transmission.
Shaki is making a huge difference in their lives through your support.
Shaki continues to offer her life changing support to vulnerable children in Kinshasa. Children, who without Shaki, would be facing life on the streets of the mega city. Despite the challenges of the lock down, when sports were halted and Shaki's wrestling income was massively reduced, she continued to provide a roof and loving care for these children. She is to be commended.
Coronavirus cases in D.R.Congo appear to be reducing although there were a shortage of tests so it is hard to get an accurate picture of the reality.
Many thanks for your generous support already. Please consider offering your support once again to enable her to do her valuable work.
