              THE TERRIFYING TIMES IN WHICH WE LIVE TODAY WILL FINISH!!

The terrifying times, times that the entire humanity is suffering around the World today because of COVID -19, is for moments!! It will finish!! As we live today, let us continue to hope; to hope for tomorrow and tomorrow again; and again.

Yet this crisis may be an opportunity to start anew. It requires new solutions: “new ways of living; new ways of working and handling things; new ways of behaving and management; new ways of dealing with the situation in which we may be. NEW WAYS and NEW WAYS AGAIN and AGAIN, because in whatever situation that we may be, LIFE continues.

Despite this terrifying situation in which we live today, there is a hope:

  • In God’s protection and by his Grace
  • We are aware of the COVID-19 and know how dangerous it is for a human being “ In Kirundi we say that “ an appeared/seen stone while digging can not destroy a hoe”. YES - THERE IS A HOPE: 
  • By following and obeying the instructions and advice given by medical personnel and those who have a good knowledge in this
  • By Accepting to lose your freedom and maintaining your self control for your good and the community around you
  • By Caring for yourself and others as well, but sometimes this requires to risk your life in order to save the lives of others.

Yes, there is a hope to continue to live despite COVID-19.:

CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR  2020 GIFT MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN A WIDOW’S LIFE AND ORPHANS  MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR 2020

Your Christmas and New Year 2020 Gift will help build a home for a widowed family, reduce the expansion of AIDS and mortality occasioned by the present conditions of their living. Your donation will make a huge difference in a widow’s life and orphaned children. It will help to provide a home to a widowed and orphaned family.

Your Christmas and New Year 2020  donation would help and enable JRMD to provide shelters to 100 widowed and orphaned families. So far, we have built 11 houses for 11 widowed families of the 100 homes we plan to build in Buganda.  89  widowed families  still need shelters, where they can live in security and peacefully.  As you know, Peace education is not possible for people who do not have where to live. 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.

Helping a widowed family to improve the condition of her living by providing an affordable home, which costs $998; a home that accommodates a family of 7 to 10 people is unforgettable gift that you can give to a widowed family in Burundi, during this New Year season.

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 your Christmas and New Year 2020 donation to  help a widowed  family that will enable JRMD Team to build a home for a widowed family and orphaned children.

CURRENT SITUATION OF THOSE WHO LOST THEIR HOMES

CURRENT SITUATION OF THOSE WHO LOST THEIR HOMES 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 war 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 $1,419 have been donated for this project and one house has been built. 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.
