Joel knows very little about his family or the circumstances around which he came to be at the orphanage.
He was brought to Centre Orphelinat Tumaini as a young child and has been there ever since. He thinks his mother is alive somewhere but more than that he does not share or does not know.
He is currently in his 1st year of university and is studying Economic Science.
“Sometimes I have to wake up at 4 am to get to university because I have to walk a long way if there is no money for transportation.”
The transportation would cost about 2000 Congolese franc, this is the equivalent of € 0.82
“We face quite a lot of challenges; there are outstanding fees that are pending to be paid, so a big problem we have is lack of funds”
This is Joel

GET TO KNOW US
Nakuona is a Swahili word that means ‘I SEE YOU’. We are a charity with the heart to help improve the quality of life for orphans in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Our future hope is to expand this support into other African and third world countries, letting the children know that they are seen, that they matter. We desire to lighten the burden for the orphanages by helping to meet their most pressing needs and in so doing practically show them the love of Christ.
We would love to do this with YOU.
