Dancing for Hunger Relief

The situation in the communities of Cyauzinge and Masoro, Rwanda was difficult because Covid-related public health restrictions forced people to stay at home.  They could not work, and without work, they could not feed their families.

Because of this challenge, the food relief that we provided by this project brought great joy to many hungry families.

As the Covid restrictions continued, it was clear that the neediest families would need more help.  We worked with community leaders to identify families that were most vulnerable. We ensured that they received food and water during this time.

Also, we found that our efforts to support the community attracted the attention of the local government and helped to cement our relationship as a trusted partner with them in community development. We collaborated with our sponor NGO in Rwanda, and that enabled the provision of direct cash donations to the families in addition to extra rice and suger from supporters in the European Union.

So, in summary, this project has helped many families and children, and has furthered our friendship with local government and the EEU, thereby allowing hundreds of people to benefit from your generous donations, for which we say, "Thank you very, very much!".
