Our newest project is birthed from an emergency need for food in the DR Congo for orphans at Good Samaritan Centre that has been overwhelmed by children arriving due to continuing violence in their region. In the last months numbers of children have doubled, to 156. Most are very young, and very malnourished.
The Centre struggles to provide one meal a day. Together with Vision Peace Club, A Peace of Life would like to offer a nutritious breakfast porridge, to quickly improve the health of these young children.
It costs only 50 cents per child for breakfast. We have launched a pilot project to provide breakfast for up to three days a week, to immediately respond while we work on longer-term, sustainable solutions. Pictured: Our first breakfast made possible by generous supporters in Canada – thanks, First Baptist Pt Alberni!
For the past three years, APOL has been involved with this Centre through the activities of Vision Peace Club, who visit the children, provide love, care and mentoring; planted a garden; and started a hair salon to generate funds for the peace club and their care of orphans.
