Report on Emergency Aid for Rwamagana District
With the emergency funding provided by Bóthar in response to the Covid-19 crisis in Rwanda, the distribution of food and sanitary supplies to close to 1,000 families representing almost 8,000 individuals in the Rwamagana District was carried out.

The distribution took place during the week of 1-5 June 2020.
Maize Flour, Beans, Rice, Cooking Oil, Salt, Sugar and Soap were included in the distribution.
Photographing the actual distribution was not possible due to a directive from central government in Rwanda.
This followed other NGOs, who were part of the emergency response to the virus, putting food distribution pictures on their websites, which led the government to ban taking of such pictures.
Thank you to everyone for supporting this appeal and helping us to help others.
