The COLK Orphanage in chaotic Kinshasa is located in the heart of the slum area and houses about 120 children of all ages. All are orphans or abandoned children for variety of reasons, many have lost parents as a result of HIV/AIDS, malaria and the ongoing conflict across the Country. The children are well looked after and receive a nutritious meal every day. Over the past year villagers of Abbots Leigh have generously supported the Orphanage through donations of clothes, shoes, toys and bed linen. Your help is very graciously received and goes a very long way to making the lives of these children a little better.
