STILL WAITING IN HOPE

STILL WAITING IN HOPE

The Survivors of Carama flooding lost their beloved ones and belongings, due to the heavy rains of Sunday, February 12, 2014. These torrential rains and landslides killed over  a 100 people, including children, women and men, and over 200 people were injured, 12,000 displaced in Bujumbura and around 3,000 houses destroyed. The survivors of Carama flooding are still waiting in hope that one day, some people who care, will make them smile again. Remember, during the Bujumbura flooding, one couple lost their 6 children, killed by torrential rains.    

Today, some of those who lost their homes in Carama are living in the remains and others are still in displacement camps and schools. They are in great need of permanent shelters where they can live with their families. 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.

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 continue to 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  land before the next rainy season, which begins soon.

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

THEY STILL NEED A SHELTER

                                                                THEY STILL NEED A SHELTER

There is NO way to promote peace, reconciliation, education, development, safety, health in and among the families who do not have shelter/home. 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  a family a voice and right place in the society. Building shelters for the survivors of the war  and needy families in  Burundi,  helps reduce the expansion of AIDS and the mortality, occasioned by the present conditions of living of thousands of widows and needy families in Burundi. 

From these pictures,  you can see how is the condition of living of those widows and orphans that JRMD is serving in the area. Your help would enable JRMD provide shelters to 100 widow families and orphans. So far, we have built 3 houses for 3 widow families of the 100 homes we plan to build in Buganda.  97  widow families and orphans, still need shelters, where they can live in security and peacefully.

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. 

With the help of JRMD Home Building Team,  86 of 100 widow and orphan families have already made enough bricks to build their houses.  As soon, as funds to purchase construction materials are raised, with the help of JRMD home building team, the work of roofing houses already built at the stage of roofing will begin.

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/
