MiHEC is a Non-Profit Organization that was founded in 2010 by Tina Salumu—an immigrant from Congo who resides in Colorado. Tina Salumu was born and raised in The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Tina had the opportunity to go back home for a family visit. She was shocked to see how compared to the years she grew up in the same country, conditions had really gotten a lot worse; especially for the children and women. While in Kinshasa (Capital of Congo), after hearing these horrific stories and seeing the misery, Tina decided to visit some orphanages. One of the orphanages she visited has 857 orphans. Some of these children have medical conditions such as HIV, tuberculosis, pneumonia, malaria, polio, sickle cell disease, malnutrition, breathing problems and mental problems. Many of these children are also severely handicapped.  Tina had once again the opportunity to travel back home and was so excited to visit the orphanage for the second time. When Tina came back to USA, her dream and goal had become to diligently look for ways that could lead to helping the underprivileged orphans in Congo.

In 2012, MiHEC was granted the 501(C) (3) status.  With this status, Tina and her board members can present their projects and rely on more partners and volunteers who can work with them and do a more efficient job helping orphans in the Congo.

MiHEC has a network of volunteers in different communities and Congo.

In March 2016, MiHEC partnered with Farms for Orphans, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in neighboring Loveland, Colorado. Farms for Orphans’ mission is “to ensure orphaned and underprivileged children in developing countries have a sustainable source of nourishment and access to education by building the agricultural infrastructure needed to produce food and provide training in environmentally sound agricultural practices,” especially in the DRC.
