In late May of 2016 the CSA received the following request From Bro. Jean de Dieu Karimutumye:
“Thank you for your message. At the moment we have support needs to relieve our peoples Who Suffered loss. However, if possible, can you helping to have their basic needs such as:
- Clothes for 30 persons estimated at $ 600;
- 15 blankets for 5 families estimated at $ 200;
- Food for 18 families ie 25 kg of rice, 25 corn flour and 25 kg of beans for each family estimated at $ 1,038;
- 210 Iron sheets for 6 families who lost completely roofs of their houses estimated to $ 1.960
I hope that our brothers will see the love of God in this disaster.”
Joining forces with the SDB Missionary Society, CSA donated $1510 on top of the Missionary Society donating $490 for a total of $2,000 which will go to help with the items aforementioned. We continue to pray for those affected and look forward to relaying how the funds helped make a difference for the members of the Seventh Day Baptist church in Rwanda.
