Meet our team
We are Foundation Bon Samaritan. Foundation Bon Samaritan is a 100% volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania dedicated to popularize the notion of Good Samaritan, which we resume in two words “Growing Mercy.” The name “Bon Samaritan”, “Good Samaritan” in English was carefully chosen to demonstrate our commitment to showing mercy to those who need it the most. Being a 100% volunteer organization, we are committed to putting at work all your dollar. All donations go to support our great cause.
For the past years, we have made it our mission to bring safe water to rural populations, and through it will come education, health, mentorship, and economic stability. We have offices and staff members in the United States and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, led by our CEO, Co-founder, and president Benoit Kihumbu.
Meet the committed and engaged team of experts changing thousands of of-of lives.
