Across DRC, children find themselves in orphanages like Family Bethlehem for many reasons. These reasons are complicated and varied, but food insecurity is a significant obstacle to family well being. Across Eastern Congo, 3.6 million children under the age of five are food insecure.
This heavy duty tote was designed by illustrator Jos Lock. She has drawn upon the ancient Congolese proverb, “Little by little grow the bananas,” to create this tote that is as functional as it is inspiring. We hope you will pray for our friends in Eastern Congo as often as you use it!
Your donation helps to pay the school fees for children living at Family Bethlehem. For these students, education would be an inaccessible dream without people like you stepping into pay the compulsory fees. Education provides students with the skills and confidence they need to tackle the challenges they face. Our hope is that the next generation will be empowered to create healthy and stable communities where food is accessible and children can thrive!
