For every barrel of oil sold, 10 cents are donated to the Foundation, and for each ton of oil sold we donate 5 dollars.
Since 2008, the Orion Foundation has received and distributed over $10 million for projects throughout all Africa.
The Foundation provides:
- Access to drinking water (digging wells, tanker deliveries to villages, water filtration units…)
- Scholarships to cover university expenses for young Africans
- Rehabilitation of schools (building libraries, IT rooms and common rooms)
- Gifts of materials and equipment to hospitals
- Support for families of mentally handicapped people
- Donations in the event of catastrophes (11,000 tons of medical aid in 48 hours following the explosions)
- Funding for the national dictation competition working with the Ministry of Education of Congo.
Events are also programmed for each year end:
- Donations of medical equipment to hospitals
- Donations of food supplies to parishes and mosques
