Since the year 2000 our annual reports provide an overview over the progress of our projects. Apart from summaries concerning the current project this section also covers completed projects. Thereby we trace the history of “Active Direct Help”. Additionally we regularly publish the recent developments to our current project in detail.

Annual Reports
The last three years we’ve been working together with Pastor Theophile and his association SABEC and have run a feeding scheme for 100 orphans. We bought two hectares of land for them in Mokali and planted different fruit trees and around 700 pineapple plants which are growing well there. Since almost two years we are also sponsoring the schooling for those children who did not go to school yet. This project started as a joint venture together with our partners. Since about one year, as we were planning to build a school for the orphans, it became clear that they wanted to work more and more independent from us.

Even the local newspaper gave a beautiful tribute to these little heroes! Since it is so difficult to reach…


For those of you who don’t know yet, since quite a while we were considering adopting a Congolese baby and have inquired at two orphanages about the possibilities. Unexpectedly soon after our visit we received a phone call informing us that an abandoned newborn baby was found on the street in the night. As shocking as this news was we’ve heard of similar cases before. After checking things out and praying further about the matter we decided to adopt her. We named her Anissa Mary and she is such a joy. Many Congolese get touched by our adopting one of their children and take it as proof of our love for their people. The food distribution at our two orphan centers is going well and we again had some special visitors to help with this: one couple from the German Embassy and one couple from the Belgian Embassy.
