EPH has been a great ay to give back to DRC, the idea behind housing vulnerable children in a forever home, is terrific. The kids are well fed and cared for, I have met some of the children housed at EPH foundations orphanage and they have changed so much for the better. EPH has been very open on their funds and where their money is going, it is an organization that we will continue to support!
The Elisabeth Ph Heizer Foundation is a fantastic non-profit that truly puts the children first with every decision. The kids in the orphanage really are the top priority! All efforts of the staff and volunteers go towards ensuring that the kids continue to have the safest and healthiest environment, and that they are provided with the best education, and I think that that really says a lot about the EPH Foundation and their goals.
I visited the Mere Admirable Orphanage in 2006 which is supported by the Elisabeth PH Heiser Foundation. As an experiential trip for my senior year of high school, I spent my weeks at the orphanage creating a short-film highlighting the orphanage and comparing it to other orphanages in the surrounding area. In addition, leaders of the orphanage and myself began a grant-writing process to find further funding for the project.
The orphanage itself is a safe and healthy community in which vulnerable children in the DRC can find a safe-haven in the bustling metropolis of Kinshasa. All of the individuals involved with the orphanage are dedicated to the cause and left me feeling that these children will grow up to represent a new generation of educated and determined individuals. Elisabeth is an amazing woman who is working hard to ensure the lives of these children are in the best care and that they receive the attention and care needed.
My experience with the orphanage has been nothing but positive and I feel that this project is something that should and could be replicated throughout the DRC to help vulnerable and displaced children.
This charity organization has dedicated itself in helping the children who unfornately no longer their parents to provide for their basic human needs. It has done an excellent job in provind education to the children and it has seen one of the first girl who arrived 10 years ago, coplete her secondary education with honors at 16. Though small by many standards, it has increased the number of children it helps, and the children really fell like they belong to a family and not just living in an orphanage.
Je viens de temps en temps Ã Kinshasa et j'en profite pour passer un peu de temps Ã l'orphelinat. Discuter, partager, jouer, lire avec les filles et le petit John est un vrai plaisir. Je rassemble en Belgique des habits, des livres, des jouets...que je leur amÃ¨ne. Les enfants sont bien soignÃ©s et bien Ã©duquÃ©s et mÃªme si ce n'est que quelques enfants, cela donne de l'espoir.
I have been extremely impressed with the time and dedication of the staff members and the orphanage coordinator and president Elizabeth Forchive, who has dedicated her life to the children of the orphanage. All efforts are made to ensure that the children grow up sheltered from the suffering that plagues many other children within the D.R.C.
