SURVIVORS OF CARMA FLOODING STILL NEED YOUR HELP

THE SURVIVORS OF CARMA FLOODING STILL NEED YOUR HELP

As informed you in my last report, some of the survivors of Carama flooding are still living in the remains and others are still living in displacement camps; but they are still hoping  that one day, some people who care, will 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 much rain and  lack of food to eat.  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.

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.

A NEW HOME FOR A WIDOW FAMILY

 This is the 4th house that has been completed of the 100 houses we plan to build for 100 widow families in Buganda.  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.

A home is one of the most important things which contribute to the good living of a human being. That’s why at JRMD, building homes for the survivors of the war and needy families, is one of the strategies to promote and achieve peace, and give youth a voice and right place in the society.  Providing shelters to widows, orphans and needy families will help reduce the expansion of AIDS and the mortality, occasioned by the present conditions of living of thousands of widows and needy families in Burundi.

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/

I am very grateful and appreciative to each one of our donors, friends and friends of friends who continue to make the realization of this project possible so that each of the   100 widow families can have a home, where she can live with her children.  

May God continue to bless each one of our donors, friends and friends of friends in a very special way.

CONTINUING BUILDING A BETTER COMMUNITY IN BURUNDI, AFRICA

Let's us all together be part of the solution wherever we are able to make a difference for a better community and nation.  A solution that heals a wounded community and nation; a solution that gives hope for the future; a solution that enables people to become self-sufficient and independent.

This is being done by friends and friends of friends, together with you and JRMD team, through a worthwhile project that helps and  enables a community to build their own lives and become self-sufficient one day.  

With your donations, JRMD continues to provide education to  the unprivileged kids, schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School.  This is only possible by continuing joining hands together to build the society and the world we want, that each one of us is longing to belong to and live in. From July 2013 – February 2015, $67,846.59 have been donated through GlobalGiving, by 191 donors and 8 of 191 donors are making their donations on monthly bases, through GlobalGiving.

I know there are a lot of other ways you could have spent this money, but you believe in our cause, so you chose to invest it in our project. Because of this investment, I want you to feel like part of our team. We're in this together. I want our success to be your success.

Because of you, today, Iwacu Kazoza School  is counted as one of the best schools in Cibitoke province even in the country of Burundi, of the schools providing  qualitative education. Students, parents and people  like  Iwacu Kazoza School. This is a good result of your work and our work together. We give thanks to our donors and GlobalGiving for making possible the education of these children, who could not have access to education without your financial help and prayers.

The school year 2014-2015 opened on September 1st, 2014, with 495 students, from grade 1-11, made by girls and boys, from Ruhagarika Village, surrounding areas and beyond. During this school year, Iwacu Kazoza School has 28 teachers and school administration staff being paid by JRMD, who are providing education to 495 students.

Until now,  we are still lacking funds to Roof 2 more additional classrooms (the 2 more additional classrooms to be roofed are at the stage of roofing), purchase teacher and student books, purchase more student benches, purchase 2 big plastic water tanks to secure water for the school, purchase 10 KW solar  panel and purchase more laptops.

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.

I am very grateful and appreciative to each one of our donors, friends and friends of our friends who continue to make this project possible through their donations and prayers. May God continue to bless each one of you in a very special way.
