Gifts From U.S.A. Donors are Directed to the Orphan Care and Education Ministry


The Main objective of Congo Family Restoration is to establish an authentic Congolese family structure and lifestyle for our rescued orphans.

Across the vast nation of D.R.Congo, tens of thousands of families have been separated and destroyed due to conflicts, death and crisis. Several million have died in civil wars and the crisis associated with them since 1998.

While problems in D.R.Congo have come about as a result of brutal Colonial rule that operated from a position of power, greed and fear; that same kind of rule has continued to dominate for most of Congo's history.

With the total lack of infra-structure (less than 600 miles of paved roads exist in the country) and vast natural resources...relentless wars, massive corruption, poor leadership, global greed and pillaging have ruled the day.

All this has left in its wake a multitude of innocent, vulnerable orphaned children. These orphaned children are routinely exposed to unchecked and rampant violence, fatal diseases (including HIV/AIDS from rape), illiteracy, street survival, extreme poverty and total despair.

Specific objectives for Congo Family Restoration:

  • Rescue Vulnerable Children from the Street
  • Work Within the Faith Community to Find Suitable Foster Families for the Orphans
  • Assist with the ongoing physical, moral and spiritual rehabilitation of every child rescued
  • Ensure each rescued child has access to an education


Orphan Care

Since 2005 Congo Family Restoration has rescued 100 orphans. We have 50 children in Kinshasa and 50 children in Goma. While there are many, many more children in need of rescue, this is what we can manage to care for and report on thus far. It is our hope and prayer that we will continue to grow as we demonstrate excellence. As we further develop the trust and loyalty of our generous supporters, more children can be saved from the violent streets.

We have an annual budget of $10,000 for each of our locations (Kinshasa and Goma). On average that is $200 per child annually or a little over $16.00 per month. This sum covers the cost of the child's school uniform, their school fees, clothing, extra food for the family and any urgent medical care (if needed). Because the foster families are also often among the "poorest of the poor" we want to aid, encourage and support their loving kindness - and not burden them with any additional expense for taking in and loving another child. We hope you will prayerfully consider how much a gift to CFR will help in changing the impoverished lives in need.

"Foster Family" The Model of Congo Family Restoration

Growing up in a loving family is of vital importance to a child. That is why we work closely with the local faith community to place our rescued children. The placement of our orphaned children within loving families is of paramount importance.

The sooner children can feel secure, accepted and loved - the sooner they begin to heal physically and spiritually. Once in school we have seen them excel and begin to dream...and to have HOPE for the future! Today's children are the future of D.R. Congo. Congo Family Restoration is doing all it can to rescue and then assist in developing a new generation of educated young leaders who have integrity and vision for their nation.
