De La Salle student's collection for Congo on hold due to instability, violence

Escalating violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo temporarily stalled the efforts and hopes of De La Salle student Felix Songolo. This spring, the then-junior organized a collection for Congolese youths — gathering enough clothes, shoes and backpacks to fill five large bags and receiving about $400 in donations.

An updated travel warning issued by the U.S. Department of State will keep the teen from returning to his roots this summer.
