Mz. Congo was born from our nonprofit charity the Mz Congo Foundation Inc. This Foundation provides shelter, food, education, medical care, and more to the children of the Democratic Republic of Congo. 50% of the profit will go towards the foundation in efforts to keep supporting children in need.
The MzCongo Foundation was created in January 2009 by Laetitia. This charity was started to help give a better opportunity to children in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) who live on the streets. Our goal is to provide neglected children without homes a chance for a better life.
CEO and Founder of the Mzcongo Foundation Laetitia was a victim of rape and abuse as a child, she is able to relate to the street children of Kinshasa on a personal level.
Although Laetitia was able to migrate to the USA, her heart always ached for the kids who were left in Congo with no help. Most of the street kids were also victims of rape and abuse and were kicked out of their homes. Some lost their parents leaving them with no one to take care of them and were forced to turn to prostitution in order to survive.
Understanding that most of these children do not want to be in the street, Laetitia made it her mission to help them get to safety and create a better life for them. Laetitia feels that she too could have been one of those children in the street had she not been given a chance to migrate to America for a better life. Therefore, her heart goes out to those children and she wants to do everything in her power to help them get out of that misery.
We fully fund the Mz Congo Foundation Inc. We currently host over 600 children and provide food, clean water, education, medical care, housing, counseling, and so much love.
We have multiple relief projects in Congo. This includes home construction, school construction, up-fitting houses that were destroyed by the storm, and partnering with other non-profits to assist in the growing homelessness, suicide crisis, and children abandonment in the Congo.
We are funding an orphanage in Kinshasa called (CEED Tolamuka). Our youngest child lived the first 5 years of his life there and we are passionate about the well-being of the remaining children.
50% of our store profit is spent helping the foundation accomplish its goals and mission.
We also spend 10% of our profits supporting the work of other non-profits
