THEY FEEL LIKE ABANDONED SURVIVORS

                                                   THEY FEEL LIKE ABANDONED SURVIVORS

As informed you in my previous report, some of the survivors of Carama flooding are still living in the remains and others are still living in displacement camps; today they feel like abandoned survivors, waiting for a help from people who care to make them smile again and be resettled in their own homes. Remember, during the Bujumbura flooding, one couple lost their 6 children, killed by torrential rains and over 100 people died.    

The current living situation of those families is becoming more horrible, due to the lack of food to eat  and  shelter.  As they continue to live in the remains of the houses  destroyed by floods, they are afraid that  any time, they can fall on them and be killed.

To build one home it costs $998, a home that can accommodate a family of 7 to 10 people. . A home is one of the most important things which contribute to the good living and security of a human being. Until this time I am writing this report, only $210 have been donated for this project.

As we continue to share the needs of Carama Survivors, I do hope and believe that donors will consider making donations to this project, so that we can help the survivors of Carama  rebuild their homes,  in their own  land.

Until this  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 so much for your consideration to help JRMD   make a difference in Carama survivor  community.

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.
