Wilben’s support of the Mbour Orphanage in Senegal began in June 2018 and remains an ongoing priority for us.
The Mbour orphanage is home to children up to the age of 12, many of whom have been abandoned by their families. It is subsidized by the government but has struggled to secure regular support to cover its basic needs.
As part of our initial support, Wilben helped with the rebuilding of the orphanage, facilitating work on the dormitory and providing much-needed supplies, including bottled water, food, cleaning products, clothes, bedding and appliances.
Wilben continues to support the Mbour Orphanage with a monthly financial donation. Wilben staff regularly visit the orphanage, bringing with them donations of goods and essential items.
