Construction for the new building project in Lukula, Democratic Republic of Congo, is underway. Local people will build homes for orphans, an educational center, wells, and more – in addition to the Pig Depot already stationed at Lukula. This is all possible thanks to donations and fundraisers held right here in Ohio.
An orphanage, school, and clinic in Lukula can serve over 800 villages. That’s why the need here is so great. Because there are so many sick in the Congo, they treat themselves with substandard, fake drugs from India. No one can afford doctors, and the roads to a hospital or clinic are often impassable. Many die on the journey. Mothers often die during childbirth outside of clinics. Simple complications so easily rectified here are a death sentence in the Congo, much like treatable diseases such as tuberculosis and malaria.
Below are photos of the orphanage being built.
- These children are helping to build their own home.
- By having locals build these buildings, we put people who would otherwise have no income to work.
- There is an IMMENSE plot of land at Lukula. We are limited only by funds.
- Each day of construction, we employ people that would have nothing. In addition to collecting a paycheck for their work, they’ll learn and exercise building skills including masonry and general construction.
