WHAT IS NOT POSSIBLE TODAY IS POSSIBLE TOMORROW

WHAT IS NOT POSSIBLE TODAY IS POSSIBLE TOMORROW

We should not be discouraged when things do not go as we had planned, because what is not possible today, will be possible tomorrow; but remember, Big Vision requires Big Dream, Big Dream requires Big Actions and Big Actions require Big Commitment, knowing that there is wonderful joy ahead. Commitment requires courage and patience; Patience and courage never fail and are determined by the End".

Enabling a widow family to improve the condition of living by providing an affordable home, which costs $998; a home that accommodates a family of 7 to 10 people. Providing a home to a widow and needy family will help reduce the expansion of AIDS and the mortality of unprivileged children occasioned by the present conditions of their living. A home is one of the most important things that contribute to the good living of a human being.

Until the time I am writing this report, 4 houses  of the 100 houses we plan to build for 100 widow families in Buganda have been completed.  96  widow families and orphans, still need shelters, where they can live in security and peace. Bricks made and houses that have been already built at the stage of roofing are being destroyed by rains. We continue to hope that donors and friends will enable us to provide shelters to those widows and complete the construction of 100 homes, as it has been planed.

We continue to hope that donors and friends will enable us to provide shelters to the other 96 widow families and make them smile again. A smile that gives hope for tomorrow.

Until our project is fully funded, we will be sending you regular reports about our work. You'll know what your donation has helped fund, what accomplishments we have achieved and what our current needs are. Donation can be made through the following link: http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/providing-shelters-to-100-widows-in-buganda/

With much thanks and appreciation to each of ours donors and friends who are helping us to complete this project.

THEIR HOPE IS STILL ALIVE

THEIR HOPE IS STILL ALIVE

A home is one of the most important things which contribute to the good living of a human being. There is no safety, health and peace without a home. A home is the most intimate space we inhabit; it is the centre of our daily existence, where our most significant relationships are built. To lose this place, it disturbs and affects physically and relationally. Each one of us can understand the effects of physical and relational victimization. You can now imagine how much is painful for those who lost their homes on February 9th, 2014, due to a torrential rains and landslides that have left at list 100 people dead and over 1000 houses destroyed in the northern areas of Bujumbura, Capital City, including Carama location where JRMD helped 786 families to build 786 houses whom their homes were destroyed during the ethnic ware in 1993.

Despite the suffering situation of lack of shelters, food and clothing that the survivors of the February 2014 torrential rains and landslides are still going through, their hope is still alive that one day, they will have access to the shelter where they can live. This project is about building 100 houses for 100 families in Carama, to provide shelters to the survivors of the Sunday, February 9th, 2014 torrential rains and landslides.

Until our project is fully funded, we will be sending you regular reports about our work. You'll know what your donation has helped fund, what accomplishments we have achieved and what our current needs are.

Thank you for showing your solidarity with them,
