More Details..
Comfort Rwanda & Congo in partnership with Comfort Congo has built a vital lifesaving clinic in Rusayo in North Kivu. In this area of D.R. Congo statistics say that 1 in 24 women will die in child birth. This clinic serves one of the poorest communities by providing general medical care, surgery and maternity care. Covering staff and equipment costs are vital to the daily running of the clinic. We would also like to purchase an ambulance. When you buy a gift from here you will be helping to save lives.
Children of Liberty
Stacks Image 6083
from £20
More Details..
In D.R.Congo the sad repeated story of too many young people is of their villages being overrun by rebel armies, the women raped, men and women killed and the young people forced to join rebel armies. The girls are forced into sex slavery and the boys drugged and given guns. Some of the children manage to escape or are rescued by Comfort Congo.

The Children of Liberty program helps to counsel and comfort these children, restore their self-worth, provide food and education and give them a hope and a future. The recent purchase of land and further accommodation has given rise to a need for more mattresses and there is always a need for more food. A gift from here is helping these young people who have lost almost everything.
