The 7,400-Mile Journey Has been Completed But …

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 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

Your donation will enable us finish the school year 2016-2017 without having teachers striking.

Thanks,

AN UNFORGETTABLE GIFT THAT YOU CAN GIVE TO A WIDOW FAMILY

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. 

Your donation would help and enable JRMD provide shelters to 100 widow families and orphans. So far, we have built 6 houses for 6 widow families of the 100 homes we plan to build in Buganda.  94  widow families and orphans, 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 widow family to improve the condition of 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 widow family in Burundi, during this Easter season.

Providing a home to a widow and needy family will help reduce the expansion of AIDS and the mortality of unprivileged children occasioned by the present conditions of their living. A home is one of the most important things that contribute to a good living of a human being. 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/

Thank you for your Easter donation to a widow’s family that will enable JRMD Team to provide a shelter to a widow family and orphaned children.

WAITING IN HOPE IN THEIR PAINFUL JOURNEY

WAITING IN HOPE IN THEIR PAINFUL JOURNEY

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 in their painful journey 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 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.

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