                 A CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR GIFT!

 Let us together enjoy Christmas and New Year Seasons’ Holiday.

In Burundi, Christmas and New Year days, people expect for 4 things to happen in their families and community: (1) Celebrate Jesus’ birth day (2) Worship and Thanks Giving to God, (3) Eat good food and drink, (4) and parents buy new clothing to their children and husbands to their wives.

These two celebrations are going to be celebrated when many families in Burundi are not able to get enough food to feed their families and when there are still many widows and orphans who do not have a shelter.

As you can see from the pictures, this is a widow and her two kids who got a new home as a Christmas and New Year gift. From the attached pictures, please compare the house in which she used to live in and the new home where she lives today. You can help us build 25 homes for 25 widow families during these Christmas and New Year Holiday seasons. It would make them smile again and improve their living conditions.

Enabling 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 could be a good Christmas and New Year gift. 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 the time I am writing this report, 5 houses  of the 100 houses we plan to build for 100 widow families in Buganda have been completed.  95  widow families and orphans still need shelters, where they can live in security and peace. Bricks made and houses that have been already built at the stage of roofing are being destroyed by rains. We continue to hope that donors and friends will enable us to provide shelters to those widows and complete the construction of 100 homes, as it has been planned.

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/

Much thanks and appreciation to each of ours donors and friends who are helping us to complete this project.

WHAT IS NOT POSSIBLE TODAY IS POSSIBLE TOMORROW

We should not be discouraged when things do not go as we had planned, because what is not possible today, will be possible tomorrow; but remember, Big Vision requires Big Dream, Big Dream requires Big Actions and Big Actions require Big Commitment, knowing that there is wonderful joy ahead. Commitment requires courage and patience; Patience and courage never fail and are determined by the End".

A NEW HOME FOR A WIDOW FAMILY

 This is the 4th house that has been completed of the 100 houses we plan to build for 100 widow families in Buganda.  96  widow families and orphans, still need shelters, where they can live in security and peace. Bricks made and houses that have been already built at the stage of roofing are being destroyed by rains. We continue to hope that donors and friends will enable us to provide shelters to those widows and complete the construction of 100 homes, as it has been planed.

A home is one of the most important things which contribute to the good living of a human being. That’s why at JRMD, building homes for the survivors of the war and needy families, is one of the strategies to promote and achieve peace, and give youth a voice and right place in the society.  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.

We continue to hope that donors and friends will enable us to provide shelters to the other 96 widow families and make them smile again. A smile that gives hope for tomorrow.

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 am very grateful and appreciative to each one of our donors, friends and friends of friends who continue to make the realization of this project possible so that each of the   100 widow families can have a home, where she can live with her children.  

May God continue to bless each one of our donors, friends and friends of friends in a very special way.

                                                                  COMPASSION IN ACTION!!!               

Compassion is not about words, Compassion is actions; it is about caring for those in need and suffering. Compassion is feeling with someone and not feeling for someone. When you feel with some one,   you identify yourself with that person. Because, when you feel with, it means that you also feel the pain as much as if it was on you. with Compassion you just don’t feel, you also get a strong desire to do something, something that would make the pain go or lessen the pain, and more often the desire is so strong that you end up trying as much as you would have tried for your own self. And you may even become restless when you can’t do much about it. It’s more saying sorry, you can’t get the satisfaction of just saying “sorry” or “I will pray for you”. The way I understand Compassion, it’s to be human. A human being feels pain and feels for others too. Compassion is selfless act, it makes you see others; you just don’t think that as long as you are fine then everything is good for every one.

Compassion is about action; it is about caring for one another; it is about understanding; it is about identifying yourself with those in need and suffering; it is about solidarity; it is about helping find the solutions for those who are waiting for a help and assistance.

So far, we have built 3 houses for 3 widow families of the 100 homes we plan to build for 100 widow families that we plan to build in Buganda.  97  widow families and orphans, still need shelters, where they can live in security and peace. Bricks made and houses that have been alerady built at the stage of roofing are being destroyed by rains. We continue to hope that donors and friends will enable us provide shelters to those widows.

The condition of living of those widows is becoming harder as those widows have to travel miles to look for wood for fire to cook food whenever they are able to get it. It takes more than 6 hours to find and get the woods!

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.

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.
