Visit of the orphanages Kimbondo (Madlen) and COLK in Kinshasa

On top of the regular meetings with ADH Congo and BBK members, Wolfgang had a chance to meet again with Madlen, who continues to faithfully care for the orphans in the Kimbondo orphanage. With the help of one of her influential friends, she hopes to be able to soon start building a school for the small children in her care. Healthwise she is doing relatively well considering her constant fight against cancer. ADH supports Madlen as we see what an important and excellent work she is doing with the orphans. The COLK orphanage was very thankful for our yearly support. Mama Monique and Mama Jeanette do their best for the 90 orphans in this extremely poor section of town.

Acheminement réussi par voie maritime d’un container alimentaire pour le Congo & distribution dans des orphelinats de Kinshasa.

Autres bonnes nouvelles : Lenka avait rencontré, il y quelque temps à Prague, le Pasteur Daniel, membre de l’organisation « Feed the Hungry ». Celui-ci organisa l’envoi pour le Congo, par l’organisation mère aux USA, d’un container de 40 pieds contenant des repas supplémentés à base de riz, les « Manna Packs ». Nous devions parvenir à faire entrer ce container au Congo en franchise douanière, ce qui n’est pas tâche aisée. Après plusieurs mois, il fut possible de faire acheminer le container grâce à l’organisation « Scripture Union » à Kinshasa, partenaire de longue date d’ADH, sans payer de taxes d’importation. La branche de « Feed the Hungry » en Tchéquie paya pour la nourriture ainsi que 9 000 $ de frais de prise en charge, de taxes portuaires ainsi que le pour transport à l’intérieur du Congo. La nourriture fut distribuée à des personnes dans le besoin à Kinshasa, dont l’orphelinat COLK ainsi qu’à environ 500 orphelins à Kimbondo, où Madlen s’investit sans compter.

Presentation of our work in primary school Gerbach

After his time in Congo, Wolfgang visited the Gerbach elementary school in Germany and showed the pupils our last video. These children are faithfully supporting our project since many years through their quarterly “Students Café”, with the support of their parents and teachers. It is always a pleasure to show them our appreciation and give them more insight into what they are supporting.

ADH trip through Europe

Wolfgang travelled two months in Germany, the last month together with Lenka and Anissa – to visit friends and supporters and for the annual meeting of our association. At the end of July, we had again an interview with Christopher Griebel from the Munich TV. (Interview with Munich TV, L-R: cameraman Kian Vaziri-Elahi; reporter Christopher Griebel; Wolfgang; Dr. Maria Teusch, our supporter and dentist; Anissa and Lenka) All together it was an inspiring and fruitful trip meeting new contacts and connecting deeper with our friends.

Ongoing Fights in Kasai

The situation in Kasai, the province where our school in Mushapo is located, continues to be overshadowed by terrible reports. It is difficult to describe the exact facts and background of this humanitarian catastrophe, but the following can be said from various newspaper articles (i.e. on Google: “Who’s in Congo’s Mass Graves?”) and from personal reports of our friends and some Congo experts: • Over 1 million people from the province of Kasai have fled, to Angola, into neighboring provinces in Congo etc. • Brutal massacres have been reported by eyewitnesses in some villages. So far 80 mass graves have been found. More than 3,000 people have been killed as a direct result of this conflict. But in this recent article the UN reports: “The actual number of murders is probably much higher than the official figures…” • The terrifying approach of the armed people resembles the one in the East of Congo, with the aim of dispersing the population in order to exploit the resources more easily. Kasai is known for its many diamonds. In view of this situation, we can only hope and pray that more international attention will move the government towards finding a peaceful solution. Until then, not only are our and the other schools and health centers in the region brought to a halt, but innocent people will continue to die and are driven away. Instead of letting ourselves be discouraged from helping other needy people, we are thankful for what has been achieved so far: • Since the beginning of our project in 2011, nearly 2000 pupils have attended our school. They will not forget how someone from abroad built them a school, set it up and made it possible for them to receive free schooling, while now their own country men drove them out. • The children will be able to continue to receive further schooling in their new places of refuge. • Our teachers keep receiving salaries from the government in spite of the fighting. • Through this project, our team has gained important experience on how to build development work in the rural areas of Congo, where the need is the biggest. These experiences can help us and others with similar projects.

Ongoing Riots in the region of Mushapo (West-Kasai)

The situation in the Kasai provinces, where our school is situated, has changed a lot. In this formerly peaceful region, late last year fighting erupted between the followers of Chief Kamuina Nsapu and government forces, causing hundreds of lives on both sides. The unrest spread from one area to others which made it unsafe for Wolfgang and Jean to travel to Mushapo. Even two white UN experts were kidnapped and killed there recently. In the meantime, several militia groups attacked cities and villages in the different Kasai provinces. In the middle of April, Tshokwe tribesmen from the village Mungamba chased away all none-Tshokwe people from Mushapo and the surrounding villages. This included our school director Pierre and 8 out of 10 teachers who had to take refuge in Tshikapa, the capital of this province. The attackers wounded our teacher Mukendi in his arm with a machete. These bandits also looted what they could take with them. Thankfully, 13 new mattresses of our health center, the photo-copy machine of our school and the generator of our camp were saved. A government office opened in Tshikapa, where people can file complaint about the materials which they lost in the lootings. Gilbert contacted the former Minister of Education, Mr. Maker, who told him that we should not be discouraged as he believes that things will slowly calm down in the area. We have to wait for peace in the region before our teachers can return to Mushapo.

New project in Mabala

In order to plan the trip to Nioki we had a meeting with representatives of the BBK NGO who we want to work with on a new project in Mabala, 7 km East of Nioki. We would like to build a Primary School there and will see step by step how the project develops. We need to buy and register a piece of land and choose the right person who will be trained as an overseer of the work there by our local manager Jean, who will oversee this person and the new project, just like he is doing with our school director Pierre in Mushapo.
