The Organization for the Guidance & Support of the Disadvantaged.
About the Creators
As a result of his work in the community, Simwerayi became a target of the rebel forces in Goma . He and Helen were eventually forced to flee the Congo and migrate to the United States. Nonetheless, upon their arrival in the U.S., the couple continued their support of this work. “We would save fifty dollars every week and send it back to the organization. That may not be too much here in America, we might spend it on a pair of sneakers here, but it is enough to help in the Congo. It is enough to help put a child or two through a school year,” says Helen, who continues to be an active member of the organization.
