ELISABETH PH HEISER FOUNDATION

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.
