Since 2010

Fountain Of Hope Africa is a Non-profit Organization that was established since 2010, by Marcel Cirhuza a survivor of war and armed conflicts from the Eastern of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The purpose of FOH is to heal, restore hope, and contribute to building resilient and selfsufficient communities, and promote sustainable development by empowering the most vulnerable through adapted and long-lasting solutions. FOH aims to change lives to the better in the Sub-Sahara region of Africa due to daily increase of the number of marginalized individuals, families and communities victim of war, armed conflicts, climate change, food crisis, poverty, pandemic, and natural disasters. It is our responsibility to act and come up with a solution by undertaking projects that change people’s lives. Currently we are operating in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Malawi.

Fleeing persecution from Burundi I arrived in Dzaleka refugee camp Malawi with my five children and nothing else after losing my husband and everything during the armed conflicts. I was hopeless because I had no food for my children, I was crying day and night and was traumatized. I have been realized since I received money from Fountain of Hope and started my business that is helping me a lot with my children. I am happy now.

My husband passed away and left me with four children and an unroofed house. We have been suffering a lot during the rain season. Now I have bought iron sheets for the roofing of our house from the cash transferred by Fountain Of Hope.

Since our father passed died by accident we lost hope because none could help to pay for our school fees. Three of my siblings are blind and their education is very expensive, our mother can not afford, we thank Fountain Of Hope for helping with tuition fees and school materials.
