Cover the food costs of a widow from the age of 60 with only € 70,- per month!
The beginning: Maman Zola

The starting signal for the foundation in 2020 was a widow named Maman Zola, who was found by Maman IDA MBAMBA KIYEM on July 14th, 2020 after evangelist La Grande suggested that she look for a widow living on the street to do something good for her.


You can see the condition of this poor widow in the following recording: (Video)

She was given cassava flour, a kilo of rice, a flashlight (to see in the dark), matches, a kilo of sugar, embers, and a sum of 40,000 FC (equivalent to US$25) for clothing and other goods of daily personal needs. This widow's recorded thanks on video was posted on social media and was well received.


This gave Evangelist La Grande the courage and impetus to expand such activities. On December 24th, 2020, the foundation was officially established and recognized by the Congolese state. The opening of the aid organization la Grande in Austria followed in 2021.

Why help a widow in Africa?

Children, kitchen, church, these three words unfortunately always describe the sole role of many women in Africa.

If you have no children and the man has died, the widow is often seen as a burden in advanced age.

With ingrained stigmas in society, these widows are frequently stigmatized as witches or cursed women and quickly end up on the streets.

A sad fate that many of our widows have lived through and are living through.

With your help, you can give one or more widows a new hope in life and aging with dignity! Everyone has rights, even if that person has no one left.

This is what the Fondation la Grande stands for!
