ONE DAY THEY WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SHELTER AND FOOD

ONE DAY THEY WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SHELTER AND FOOD

Despite the suffering situation of lack of shelter and food that the survivors of the torrential rains and landslides that destroyed over 250 houses in Carama in 2014, where JRMD built 786 houses some of them are still living in the remains and others being hosted by other families.

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 center 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 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.

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 $880 have been donated for this project. As we continue to share the needs of Carama Survivors, 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 own  land and save their lives. 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.

We won’t cease advocating for those in need until they are resettled and have a shelter where they can live with their families.

BRINGING A HOPE IN A HOPELESS FAMILY

We won’t cease advocating for those in need until they are resettled and have a shelter where they can live with their families.

As informed you in my previous reports, 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.

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.

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

DESCRIPTION OF A HOME WE BUILD FOR A WIDOW AND NEEDY FAMILY

A donation of $998 will build a house for a widow and needy family and make them smile again!!

The house that we build for a family, has 45 square meters (485 square feet). This house does accommodate a family of 7 to 10 people. It has 2 doors, 4 windows, a sitting room and 2 bedrooms. We stucco/plaster the house with cement, to protect the house from rainwater. Stucco is done on the external walls of the house. After we have helped a family build a home, the family who is the beneficiary of the house, is responsible to smooth /plaster the walls inside of the house with mud or cement; but for those who are not able to smooth or plaster the walls inside of their houses, our volunteers do provide assistance to a such families. They cook outside of the house in a small kitchen that they build themselves. We also help the beneficiary of the house build a toilet, outside of the house.

The children sleep together in one bedroom and sitting room and then the parents sleep in another bedroom. Most of the people we help build homes, they sleep on mats on which they sit on during a day time. When we are able, we do provide simple mattresses, blankets and sheets to the families that we help build homes. One simple mattress does cost between 25 and $30 and a pair of sheets and blankets costs $15.
