Every day, young children are being abused and exploited in the artisanal mines in DR Congo. The hours are long and they are often threatened with violence, all for 8p a day. The corporates who profit from these children should help them, but so far, they don't. That's why we need you.

Kimbilio, the children's sanctuary run by registered charity, Congo Children Trust, is located in Katanga province, close to these mines. Kimbilio gives support to young children, transforming their lives from exploitation to a hope-filled future.

Every penny makes a difference.
Thank you so much.

The Congo Children Trust is the UK registered charity (number 1121048) which supports the Kimbilio Project.
