JAMAA LETU NEWS-November 2020

The Jamaa Letu Orphanage newsletter is compiled from the November Quarterly Report from the Director’s of the BART & and the June Quarterly Report from the Director’s of CEJAL Jamaa Letu Orphanages.

Boys’ Orphanage—BART

Bart’s boys and staff thank God for his glory and goodness in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and we went to take this opportunity to wish you the best in Jesus name.

We thank you very much for your financial, physical, and moral support and encouragement. You have given them shelter, education, food, and everything that a child needs to grow, and be able to contribute to the development of successful adults.

May our God continue to bless you all and your families abundantly

Kafweta Naweji Paul, Director of the Orphanage

Boys Activities

The whole country is in a state of emergency because the Corona virus pandemic, and the Congolese government had announced the measures of restrictions to limit spread. Because of these restrictions the children have been involved in the following activities:

  • Wearing masks
  • Washing hands using hydro-alcoholic disinfectant
  • Avoiding contaminated objects
  • Cleaning their rooms
  • Cleaning the compound


Here we have 22 children but 4 children finalists of secondary school were waiting for their results. This is the reason why they still are remaining in the orphanage. Once they graduate we will stay with 18 children.

Schools results

We thank God so much for giving us protection and good results of all our children of primary school, secondary school, and state exams.

About the Boys

The more the boys grow up the more they change their dreams. Many prefer to be missionaries and pastors. We pray to our Lord to guide them in achieving their dreams.

Medical Care

We still give thanks to God during this period despite the pandemic that all the children are doing well.

Difficulties and Needs

  • Shortage of the electricity; it is very hard to keep fresh foods.
  • Need of generator

We have also received some gifts from many friends and partners under strict measures of confinement.
