Patmos Children’s Village

The Patmos village is home to 180 children who are either orphans or abandoned. Civil unrest has led to the disruption of families and as a result over 1 million have lost their lives. As PROLASA International we have brought together children from the Far North in BENI, very close to the BENI MAVIVI airport. Those from the territory of RUTSHURU in the city of GOMA, as well as children from the territory of FIZI, UVIRA, MWENGA, SHABUNDA, KABARE, WALUNGU, and KALEHE. We have also managed to house some of the children at the Adventist School Centre of NYAMITABA in MASISI. With the help of ICC we have managed to bring hope, life , and opportunity to these to these children.
