BRINGING A HOPE IN A HOPELESS FAMILY

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.

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.

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.

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.

                                         BE A NEW HOPE FOR THE UNDERPRIVILEGED CHILDREN!!

 Wherever you are and in whatever you do, you can be a new hope for the underprivileged children in Burundi, Africa.

A well educated person is one who not only has valuable skills and knowledge but who most importantly has character and a feeling for others so that he or she may contribute to the well-being of all, not just him or herself.

To help change the lives of orphans and continue to provide shelter and education to the underprivileged children, JRMD invites friends and friends of friends to support Iwacu Kazoza School and the orphanage under construction that will accommodate and care for 160 orphans.

While raising funds for Kevin’s surgery, I had to delay fundraising for the school that educates 450 orphans and vulnerable children in Ruhagarika, Burundi. Funds raised for Kevin’s surgery was not even enough to pay hospital bills, we had to borrow some money to complete hospital bill payment.

After his surgery in Chennai, India and back to Burundi, we have been trying to raise money to pay back funds borrowed, pay teachers and feed Kevin, but still unable as I do not see any donation coming in, despite a nice article wrote by GlobalGiving: https://medium.com/globalgoodness/the-7-400-mile-surgery-a00347c0f840

Remember, today Iwacu Kazoza School is among the BEST schools in Burundi; it is among 15 best schools at national level providing a good education. This is witnessed by the results from national exams of 2014-2015 and 2015-2016. You and your donation are playing a major role to make this to happen to the students schooling at Iwacu Kazoza School.

Your donation will enable us to finish the school year 2016-2017 without having teachers striking. All donations are tax deductible.

Time is now to save the lives of these children and help them decide for their future. There is no time to wait. Will you join us to make this to happen? Please, take action NOW:  https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/providing-education-to-450-youths-in-ruhagarika/
