Another Congo Orphanage

We visitied another orphanage while in Congo. These pictures are hard for me to look at but this is life in Congo for an orphan. We took lots of food to them and more soccer balls and some school supplies. At the end of the visit they sang for us and it was simply amazing. There was one boy and one girl who sang a solo for us and I could only stare in awe! They sleep 2-3 per twin bed, no furnishings. They cook over a pot in another dilapidated building. They are sent to school and they must have uniforms. Their fees are paid each year by an agency. The little kids on the dirt road are kids from the area checking out the white people. Totally cute and when I started waving, I could hear them giggling and waving back.
