SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — A local nonprofit is working to help orphans in the Democratic Republic of Congo by hosting a run and walk fundraiser. The DRC is rebounding from decades of war, and an estimated 4.5 million children there are orphans. The City of Refuge International provides care for children in the DRC along with emergency and disaster relief.
Richard Kitumba, President of City of Refuge International, joined us live in the studio for KEZI 9 News This Morning to tell us more about the fundraiser.
