The Christmas Appeal 2023 Outcome # 2 Who knew Santa could dance so well?

The Christmas appeal at the Rotary Club of the City of Wolverhampton this year was supported by over 50 people.

Club members, friends of club members and friends at the Bethel Christian Fellowship Church in West Bromwich gave a great many gifts and contributed in excess of £2,000 towards this appeal.

The funds would be split between 4 recipients and this is the outcome of recipient number two-

Kimbilio in the Democratic Republic of Congo.


The Kimbilio organisation is one that our club has supported for some years now and has been visited by a club member. Based in the UK, the Congo Children’s Trust founded Kimbilio   (sanctuary in Swahili) to try to help with the plight of street children- sadly very common occurrence in the largest cities of the DRC. Kimbilio runs a day centre for street children and 4 transit homes where the main emphasis is on reintegration of youngsters with their families.

In 2022 they opened a primary school on the outskirts of Lubumbashi, the second largest city of the DRC and the club funded a fun day for the 200 children who attend the school and also members of the 4 transit homes, who joined in the fun too. Youngsters were treated to food and drink with fun and games being the order of the day. The star of the show of course was Santa Claus who arrived to add even more excitement to the day.
