The Democratic Republic of the Congo

TFI’s work in the DRC began in 2021 when we agreed to assist one of our Board Members, Jilma Meneses, to bring the Kaziba Orphanage into our programmatic work. She had previously supported the orphanage for 20 years through her own nonprofit organization, and we are honored she has trusted us with its care.

Kaziba houses around 50 children under eight years of age who come from families affected by war and poverty in the DRC, and provides them with food, medical care, and a safe place to live until they can either be adopted into new families or by an existing family member who may be able to give them a more secure home. TFI is helping these vulnerable children to thrive as they wait for their families.
