Hygiene Kit Distribution

Today was the hygiene kit distribution for street children at the Ministry of Social Affairs.
Preparing for the Distribution
President Bala, the District President spoke.
It's the "dry" season, but you can see in the background that it poured rain.  Everything had to be moved to the porch and the refreshments were served inside.

These street children had families that came with them and were awarded hygiene kits.  Here are some of the happy recipients. Other "street children" came without families.  They were encouraged to leave the streets and go back home and they would also receive a kit.

Emmanuel (Public Affairs for the District), Elder Whitesides, Regional Delegate of the Social Affairs Ministry and President Bala (President of the District).
"Light" refreshments were served.  Chicken, fish, beef and plantains.  We were excited to be involved in a Humanitarian Project again.  The Humanitarian couple, Elder and Soeur Moon, are in Kinshasa, so they asked us to oversee this project.

  1. How neat! I would have loved to be there to help pass those out. I bet the recipients were so thankful!! I just love the church and the ways it reaches out to help those in need.
