GIVING HOPE TO A WOUNDED COMMUNITY

                                    Giving Hope to a wounded Community

During the ethnic war that lasted 15 years in Burundi, resulting the killing of a half million people, including men, women, children and old people and destruction of 60% around of houses in the whole country, left homeless the survivors of the war. Building shelters for widows and needy families, survivors of the war in the Buganda Commune, it helps reduce the expansion of HIV- AIDS and the mortality occasioned by the present conditions of their living.

As you can see from the pictures, 3 houses for 3 widow families have been roofed, but to complete the construction of these 3 houses, we still need around $650 to purchase 6 doors, 12 windows and 9 boxes of cement to stucco them.  With the  help of JRMD home building team, 75 of 100 widow and orphan families have already made enough bricks to build their houses  and 52 of the 100 homes to be built there are at the stage of roofing. These 3 widow families are now living in those uncompleted homes. One widow  is also trying to care for her father, as you can see from the pictures.

As soon, as funds to purchase construction materials are raised, with the help of JRMD home building team, the work of roofing houses already built at the stage of roofing will begin.

I am very thankful to our donors and friends, and friends of friends who are making their donations to help JRMD continue provide shelter to the widow and orphan families in Burundi. If one person was to try do this work alone, it would be impossible. This is only possible by joining hands together to build a society and the world we want that each one of us is longing to belong to and live in.

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 know the economy is tough, so thank you so much  for continuing to invest your hard-earned money on our cause. Please consider telling your friends and family about Wednesday, February 12th matching donations day. Donations made through GlobalGiving on February 12th will be matched at 30% for up to $1,000 per donor and per project . There is $75,000 available in matching grants, and GlobalGiving will be offering a  $1,000  bonus award for the most individual donors as well as a $1,000 bonus award for the most money raised. Matching begins at 9 am EST  or 6 am Pacific Time and lasts until funds run out or 11:59 pm EST/ 8:59 pm Pacific Time.

I am very thankful and appreciative to GlobalGiving for giving JRMD and Donors an opportunity to help and serve the community in Burundi.
