CANKUZO November 17th (ABP) – The group “Ibikorwa vy’ubuntu” handed over a house on Saturday November 13 to a widow named Belyse Niyongabo from Kigati hill, Gisagara commune in Cankuzo province (eastern Burundi), in presence of the administrative authority, a check on the site by ABP has revealed.

Mrs. Niyongabo, a mother of four, thanked the group, made up of members from different provinces of the country, for giving her a home. However, it presented other problems that it faces, notably the lack of arable land. She even cares about being able to feed her children and pay for their schooling.

The chairman of the “Ibikorwa vy’ubuntu” group, Mr. Daniel Ntirandekura, said that his foundation was born in 2017 but that its actions were manifested from the year 2020. In its interventions, that group helps people sick and other vulnerable across the country.

The administrator of Gisagara commune, Mr. Gratien Nitunga, called on the neighbors to be near Mrs. Belyse Niyongabo, while promising that the commune will assist that woman. He expressed his thanks to that group for the action he had just taken and asked others to follow suit because, he said, that action falls within the framework of the promotion of solidarity and community development.

Note that said house was equipped with two mattresses, six chairs and two beds. Mrs. Niyongabo also had an envelope, the contents of which were not disclosed.
