                 HOPE REMAINS THEIR DAILY BREAD     

We continue to advocate  for those in need until they are resettled and have a shelter where they can live with their families IN HOPE AND SECURITY.

We should not become  weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

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. Remember, during the Bujumbura flooding, one couple lost their 6 children, killed by torrential rains and over 100 people died. The current living situation of those families is becoming more horrible, due to the lack of food to eat and shelter.

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, around $1,800 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.

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

CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR  WHILE  COVID-19 RAVAGING THE  ENTIRE WORLD!! 

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021 TO OUR DONORS AND FRIENDS

Christmas and New Year 2021 will   certainly look different this year, this doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Christmas  and New Year 2021 while COVID-19  is ravaging the entire World.

In celebrating Christmas and New Year people would invite friends in their homes or restaurants , travel within their country or abroad, gathering  to share special meals, praying in their respective churches, and so on … but due to COVID-19 people will be limited in celebrating Christmas and New Year 2021.

We are all  facing difficult times;  the Coronavirus-19 pandemic is a tremendous challenge for the entire World, for all people worldwide, and for our common home. 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. The COVID-19 health and humanitarian crisis  is a very serious global concern. NEW WAYS and NEW WAYS AGAIN and AGAIN,  because in whatever situation that we may be, LIFE continues.

We know that COVID – 19  is ravaging your country, and we hold you in prayer. Here in Burundi, we have few cases thus far, though near our school and surrounding community  is a huge Malaria and poverty.

In Burundi, Christmas  and New Year days people expect  2 things to happen:

-        Eat good meal/food and drink

-        Parents purchase new clothing for their children and husband purchase new clothing FOR their wives

Unfortunately many families in Burundi  do not even get good meals that they were expecting to eat on Christmas and New Year Days because of their poverty.

Besides the two common things above mentioned, there are two more things in addition for Christians during Christmas and New Year Times:

-        Celebrating Jesus’s birth day

-        Worship and thanksgiving to God for his protection and blessings

Your  Christmas Gift can  help build a home for a widow and orphaned children.

Thank you for your help, despite the current situation of COVID-19 that you may experience in your area.

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.
