Our project is running well according to money raised. We thank for our different donors because all what they are doing, impact positively to our project of “Education and Health care of 81 albinos in rural Rwanda”. We are now about raising a seventh of the total cost of our project but more than a quarter of our beneficiaries are being served.
27 people with albinism under school age have received school materials; include bags, notebooks, pens, uniforms, shoes and school fees for some. 2 people had a surgery for skin cancer, and through the raised money they got a good treatment and cure.
Your help is also impacting on behavior change even to persons with albinism and community in general; people with albinism are now happy and have courage of full participation to school because, they are thinking that they will no more miss school materials and fees, they are confident….Community in rural area especially in these three district where we are working, begins to understand the ability of people with albinism while before, they considered them as unable persons.
IDA Rwanda continues to make change on lives of people with albinism, because of you. Thank you for everyone, for your contribution to the success of our project. We always consider your good action to these miserable kids; and young people with albinism.
Thank you once again for your help, we will keep you update to the progress of this project. May God bless you.
