Sister Alvera leads the Flame of Love Orphanage in the DRC. She has been caring for these children for a long time because, while this group of orphans is small, their lives are significant. This fall, we invested financially in the immediate need for a new dormitory and kitchen. Construction concluded this past month.
Our partners in DRC and Sister Alvera are now championing sustainability efforts, and are assessing the purchase of farmland to both teach students agricultural skills and grow produce to sell. Our partners are determining – today – that this agricultural program could make enough money to significantly reduce the orphanage’s overall operations costs.
Thank you to Mocha Club members for the continued commitment to making small sacrifices each month to make a big impact in the lives of orphans!
