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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help get more volunteers both to donate and create public awareness.

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the dedication of the orphanage head Elizabeth Fochive and hearing stories about the children as they grow.

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that my daughter spent close to a month working and living at the orphanage. She remarked at how happy the children at the orphanage are and that this results from the love that the caretakers and staff provide.
