Boys who are presently being cared for by BVES, in the town of Bukavu in the province of South Kivu, greet UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Jessica Lange with a welcoming song. BVES - Bureau pour le volontariat au service de l’enfance et de la santé - is a UNICEF-assisted local non-governmental organization offering shelter, health and education services to children who are abandoned, neglected or affected by conflict or HIV/AIDS. The boys wrote the song they are singing, in three-part harmony and accompanied by a homemade drum. UNICEF provides education supplies as well as other support to the centre.
