Summary

Now in July, the Rwanda government has placed Kigali under lockdown again because of the increase of cases and deaths from COVID-19, and the spread of COVID Delta. As the virus surges the people in the Pygmy village are more prepared this time and were able to feed themselves for two weeks, but are now again without food. Please donate what you can afford. We are expecting PSA will need to supply food for the upcoming month.

Challenge

Our partners, the people formerly known in Rwanda as the Batwa, are day laborers, paid at the end of each workday. They live hand-to-mouth and spend each day's pay to buy supper. With the virus lockdown, they have no work, no daily wage, and no food to feed their hungry, crying children. The government of Rwanda is doing everything possible during these difficult times, but does not have enough emergency capacity to feed all its people during this crisis. many people are still hungry.

Solution

Our field manager, Claude Bizimana, has a plan to purchase food, hire a heavy truck, and transport tons to the village to feed hundreds of people. Our chief administrator, Dr. Aflodis Kagaba, has cleared this plan with local officials. Now, we only need your support to keep the food relief caravan on the road. Already over 5 metric tons have been delivered, and still the pandemic lockdown continues.

Long-Term Impact

Act now. Your donation will save lives and prevent the lasting adverse effects of childhood malnutrition.
