DRC (MNN) — Civil war and economic problems are making the situation worse. Street children in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Every Child Ministries is doing everything they can to reach the forgotten children.

Every Child’s Lorrella Rouster the problems are only putting more pressure on them. “We had an airstrip at one of our major centers that was disabled because the rebel lines came to close. And also, in Kinshasa, the streets are just swelled with street children because of the fighting and the general economic destabilization.”

Rouster says children respond to the Gospel almost immediately. She says, “As soon as you reach out to them, they become interested (in the Gospel).”

That’s why funding is important. “We’re trying to get sponsorships for some of the children. A sponsorship is $28 a month. And, that can provide for a child to receive vocational training and we also have a home for them.”

Rouster says they need prayer partners for the program. You can find out more information at their web site at http://www.kidsyes.org.
