Look closely at this photo. A young girl, maybe seven or eight years old, carries an infant on her back. They are sibling orphans.
At any time in the DR Congo, you can look in any direction and see several of these sibling sets. I don’t know where they sleep. I don’t know what or how they eat. She is walking along, patting the bricks. The half-finished orphanage; a shelter she hopes to live in one day. The construction of this orphanage is stalled due to lack of funding. This image is how I keep going when things seem impossible or at least improbable. I know I am needed there to care for these children. To bring medical supplies, knowledge and to help generate funding to build her and the others a home. I know the improbable happens everyday, I just have to get there.
