During the January 2015 New Year’s holiday, a group of our Association members visited Lisanga ya Klisto Orphanage in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo and brought two boxes of toys for the children. The youngsters were delighted to receive the New Year’s gifts and the whole place became filled with the joy of smiling faces. We are deeply grateful to Supreme Master Ching Hai for giving us the loving instruction to always help others in need, and were touched to be able to bring happiness to the children.
Lisanga ya Klisto is operated by Mama Monique, a kindhearted Congolese woman who helps support the facility with her own money. She takes care of approximately 90 orphans, most of whom are two to four years old. When we went to the orphanage to distribute the toys, Mama Monique happened to be out of town, but we were deeply moved by her noble work and loving spirit. The total cost of the toys was approximately US$300. We plan to visit the orphanage again to provide further help. May Heaven bless the beautiful children of Lisanga ya Klisto.
