Mission: The Elisabeth Ph Heiser Foundation supports the Admirable Mother Orphanage for children in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo. The orphanage provides a loving home and a family for twenty children. We strive to ensure every child in the orphanage is given the best start in life to become productive and contributing citizens of society as responsible adults.  Our goal is to provide the Congolese children with quality and effective education, enabling them to discover the world and contribute to the country in which they live.  We are devoted to promoting knowledge of eternal human values which will promote peace and thereby end the terrible cycle of violence and poverty so prevalent in many areas of the continent.

We have donated to the EPH Foundation that supports the Admirable Mother Orphanage. It is amazing how the provide for the children. From advanced schooling to emergent medical care, the children are their priority. We will continue to support the organization with donations as they are doing wonders with what seems like so little.

We have met Elizabeth, the sponsor, on several occasions over the years and have been very impressed with her commitment to the orphanage, her competence, and her integrity.

The current unrest in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has left many children without a family or a home. The Mere Admirable Orphanage has, for the past ten years, taken in a small number of these children in hopes of providing a safe community for them to grow up in. The orphanage serves as a permanent home and family for the children. The emphasis on education, health and community awareness is unique to orphanages in this area of the world. I am always impressed with how happy the children at the orphanage are and with the love that the caretakers and staff provide.

The Mere Admirable Orphanage has, for the past ten years, taken in a small number of these children in hopes of providing a safe community for them to grow up in. The orphanage serves as a permanent home and family for the children. This service by the orphanage is especially important given the current unrest in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which has left many children without a family or a home. What makes the Mere Admirable Orphanage unique among orphanages in this area of the world is its emphasis on education, health and community awareness. I have also been impressed at the dedication of the orphanage president, Elizabeth Fochive, who has related to me and my family stories about the children as they grow.
