HCDRC’s work centers on support for orphanage facilities such as Colk, SECAM, Rehoboth in Kinshasa, the Capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and the Saint Joseph of Bena Tshibwabwa orphanage in Mbujimayi, city located 2,000 miles from Kinshasa, in the South-Central part of DRC.

With our sister local organization, “Sauvons les Enfants du Congo,” we confront Kinshasa’s street children crisis. Tens of thousands of children are living on the streets of Kinshasa. They have been mostly forced out by poverty, violent home lives and family breakups.

Our work includes:

– Food Distribution
– Clothing Distribution
– Medical Aid
– Education Program


Our Story

This is the story of a group of immigrants who have made America their home, but still remember their Congo motherland. Poverty, disease, and war are daily staples in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Confronted with Congo’s humanitarian crisis that has shattered the life of thousands of children being orphaned and abandoned, Guy Tshiteya, Felly Mytheo and Simon Lecane knew that they had to do something. Helping Children of DR Congo was thus founded in September 2019 to provide care, shelter, support, protection, and education to Congolese Children living under difficult circumstances. We also have a sister organization in DR Congo, called “Sauvons les Enfants du Congo” (S.E.C.), that is a legally incorporated Congo charitable organization.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where does HCDRC get its funding?

As a 501(c)(3) organization, all of our funding comes from donations. Foundations, corporations, families and individuals make up the core of HCDRC’s funding pool.

What percentage of HCDRC’s expenses are used for programs?
HCDRC uses 100% of monetary donations to make grants to orphanages and children shelters in DRC. These local nonprofit organizations, in turn, use 100% of the grants for activities, programs and projects that are 100% beneficial to the disadvantaged Congolese children.
I want to donate. What methods of payment can I use?
Donations can be made via our website, via our Facebook page, via mail, or in person. We accept MasterCard, Visa and Discover cards in addition to payment from a PayPal account. Paper checks can be mailed to 2117 W Airport Freeway, suite 33, Irving, TX 75062.
How does HCDRC decide which orphanage or children’s shelter to support and help?

We only work with orphanages, children’s shelters and local nonprofit organizations that have been legally recognized by the Congolese government. We do not take unsolicited requests for funding and support. Our HCDRC local team visits regularly the orphanages and children’s shelters, interviews caregivers and spends time with the children.

How does HCDRC make an impact?
HCDRC’s end goal is to transform the life of Congolese orphans and vulnerable children. We believe this happens through clothing distribution, food distribution, medical aid and education programs.
