Prim Nyirangabaza, centre, one of our sponsored children, recently suffered a fire which gutted her family’s household. Prim and her family are Batwa, a tribe of pygmies that are the most disadvantaged community in the region. Their houses are usually made of mud and sticks with reed roofs. The open fires inside such structures make them particularly liable to such tragic accidents and we can only be grateful that no lives were lost.
Thanks to fast communication and having a good team on the ground we were able to react quickly and help by purchasing and delivering some urgently needed supplies including a set of cooking pots, 2 blankets and material for traditional clothing.
