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.

This foundation has yet to purchase computers for the youth or internet access for the youth. It is not a true orphanage because it turns away those in need and has added only one child since the founding organizer passed away several years ago.

Many of the claims in this review are untrue. Eight new children have been welcomed to the Admirable Mother family since 2004, when Elisabeth Heiser passed away, under the leadership of her daughter, Elizabeth Fochive. At this time, the foundation can only support up to 20 children. We have dreams of expanding our capabilities, but at this time it is not possible. The orphanage has a single computer and intermittent internet access, as these expensive utilities are not easy to come by. In addition, it is not clear that this reviewer has ever visited the orphanage or has a legitimate platform to make these claims.
