Support for Buterere Flood Victims
In the month of February 2020, Friends Women’s Association (FWA) was able to raise some funds through the Global Giving Platform to support 11 families from Buterere whose houses collapsed due to the flood. So, the 11 families were given rice, beans, Burundian Fabric and women dignity kit as a sign of compassion.
FWA’s slogan is “Umukobwa ntaseka uwundi araseruka”. This means that rather than ignore the misfortune of a young woman, support her in her difficult time; tomorrow it might be you who is in need”. This slogan has pushed FWA to react by supporting some of the flood victims.
