MzCongo Foundation was created by Laetitia Kibonge to fight against child prostitution and to help neglected children in the DRC. This charity fights against child prostitution to help give a better opportunity to children that lost their ways because of various reasons. And gives neglected children such as orphans with no homes an opportunity for a better life.
“MCF” brings light and a new way of life to young children who are forced to act as adult to support their families, and children who lost their parents due to war and are now orphans with no family to care for them. We hope to change the communities in Kinshasa by fighting against this Act by providing a home and funds to keep the children off the streets.
The Mzcongo Foundation is here to bring education, raise awareness, bring treatment to the women and children of Congo. Our goal is to help the women and children of Congo with the necessities they need to survive. We want to give a second chance to those who feel that there is no other way. We want to elevate the confidence of the insecure and give them hope again.
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is one of the worst countries in which to be a child. Increasing numbers of families and children are being displaced due to conflict and poverty. Many of these children find themselves becoming victims of child trafficking and violence. With the poverty rates being so high, there is little access to healthcare or education, and increasing violence. The MzCongo Foundation supports and collaborates with different organizations in the DRC to bring change for a better future of the children and women of the Congo.
