This is a brief update on the situation with the food distributions that are being made to families in
Kigali. Seven distributions at an approximate cost of £21,000 so far. It seemed that
the situation in Kigali was improving with more free movement for people, but our families are still
not able to work. Yesterday the government announced that planned easing of restrictions, for
example allowing people to travel from one province to another, were suspended and although
cases seemed to be diminishing they are slowly rising again at the moment. There are not many
cases in the country and the track and tracing system is very rigorous. So far there has been one
death with many recovered.
As the restrictions are not easing it is planned to continue with the emergency distributions for a further three weeks.
Plans for the emergency food distribution will take expenditure to £30,000 in total.
Hugely grateful for your very generous contributions to our efforts and donations from our
friends across the world have now reached £13,424 as of May 31st This is truly amazing and we cannot
thank you enough.
Some families have been forced to move far away from the project so we send some food allocations by moto.
Some of the senior students are more than happy to help. However, it seems that the notion of social distancing is lost on many after a
vigilant start! Everyone is required to wear a mask in public but again, it seems that it is not very well
We are doing the best we can, this is such a challenging situation for everyone
So very different for our families in Rwanda from the home comforts we have here in UK.
Stay safe and well everyone, and thank you again for your generous support for us in our effort to
stave off hunger and ill health.
