Helping Children of DR Congo (“HCDRC”) is a non-profit organization recognized by the US Federal Government as a 501(c)(3) organization. HCDRC seeks and accepts charitable giving to support and aid orphanages and other local nonprofit, non-governmental organizations in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The charitable giving will provide housing, food, health care, clothing, toys, and education to orphaned, abandoned, trafficked, abused and street Children in DRC. 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.
What We Stand For
We support, aid, and help orphanages and other local non-profit, non-governmental organizations in DRC that provide care, shelter, support, protection, and education to Congolese Children living under difficult circumstances (e.g., orphaned, abandoned, abused, trafficked, and street children), so their future can be bright.
We bring Love, Care, Peace, Happiness and Hope to the Disadvantaged Congolese Children living under difficult circumstances so their future can be bright through education, tools and support they need to find success in school and in life.
OUR STORYWe Believe that each Congolese child deserves a better life notwithstanding the Country’s situation, in which the government is so corrupt and dysfunctional that the health and education systems have collapsed.
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.
