History
- Frank and Lilian are humanitarians living in Canada. They help people in the Congo-DRC. Frank could every month send some money to Congo-DRC to support children at school. He once asked his young brother to give him the number of children who are not attending school in the village of Muhungwe. When Frank got the numbers he was shocked. More than 80% were not going to school. Many have passed the school age. In the academic year 2009-2010 Frank and Lilian sponsored 13 students, 4 at University, 2 at Secondary School and the rest at Primary school. Two students completed their Bachelor degree. In the academic year 2010-2011 Frank and Lilian have 11 students to sponsor. That is where the idea to create Samaritans Without Borders Canada originated from.
The story of Ms Adele Bujisho inspired us. Of notice these 13 students were being looked after by Ms Adele Bujisho. Among these children there is Louise. Louise was born in a refugee camp in 1996. Soon after her birth, the camp was bombarded by the armies fighting in Eastern DRC. Her mother lost life in the bombardment. Her father escaped death with the tiny baby and found refuge in Muhungwe. In Muhungwe LouiseĆ¢€™s father was helped to settle by Ms. Adele Bujisho. Ms Adele Bujisho felt pity for Louise. Ms Adele Bujisho took Louise and helped her to nurture. It was hard but the little Louise soon grew big and healthier. War broke again in Eastern DRC in 1998. LouiseĆ¢€™s father was kidnapped and he never returned home. Louise remained in Ms. Adele Bujisho and she joined other student at the Kibabi primary school. Ms Adele Bujisho suffered some health problems. She moved to the city of Goma for treatment. Louise moved with her. Louise was finishing her primary school when Ms Adele Bujisho passed away leaving Louise and other children she was supporting with no help.
- In the Congo-DRC children have to pay school fees at school. On top of that they have to buy notebooks, textbooks, uniforms and other school utilities.
- Frank and Lilian soon realized they cannot afford to pay school fees and school related expenses to all these children. They also realized there were thousands of children not attending school because of poverty and have no means to pay school fees. They wondered how they could help these children explore their educational potential. They approached their friends in Canada for help.
- Frank, Lilian and Friends gathered one day and created the Samaritans without Borders Canada to help communities in need in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Besides helping children at school, Samaritans Without Borders wants to combat poverty, to raise awareness of the plight faced by poor and underprivileged in the Congo, to improve sanitary living conditions and to care for and help the needy in brief wants to help the poor in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

        2 student at Secondary School: $ 500/year
        7 Students at primary school: $ 150 x 7 = $ 1050/year


These fees include partial food stipends. Family members do assist sometimes with food during harvest season. We are trying to meet a target of $ 40 per month per student in order to satisfy their daily life especially those living in Goma. That would be $ 40 x 8 = $ 320 monthly. This would supply them with food and uniforms and school utilities. Please, kindly donate towards this project here.

Project 2: Primary School Construction in Mugunga

This project is going to be undertaken in partnership with the EELA church that is supplying the plot and the UBSD non profit organization. These 2 are based in the Congo-DR. The project phase I is due to start Jan 2012 in the case funds become available. Please, kindly donate towards this project here.
