The orphanage Julienne Tshituala
The last in the family of four, Julienne lost her father when she was two years old. Right from childhood, Julienne Tshituala has been a child who went through a lot. She was born an albino and growing up as an albino was not very easy. She has grown up with all the challenges associated with being an albino, ranging from name-calling, rejection and discrimination, as well as superstitions and myths surrounding albinism. When we met Julienne for the 1st time, she was fighting the evil CANCER, we have, thanks to the generosity of many of you, been able to keep her alive for well over 3 years, by providing all the palliative care she needed under her condition. Sadly, one morning on her way for her regular treatments, she fell on her head and subsequently died. To find out more about Julienne, please visit this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozShpv4knmo
This orphanage was created in memory of Julienne.
Children at the orphanage having fun during a visit in July 2014 by our Trustee Mrs Pauline Gardner. Pauline after her visit to the Congo said “I can’t tell you how much the trip to the Congo meant to me; thank you so much for inviting me along – it was good to get a first hand insight into everything Menelik has achieved and I was pleased to play a part, albeit a small one, compared to what everyone else has done.”
