KAYANZA December 29th (ABP) – The Maison Canah orphanage in Gahombo, Kayanza province (northern Burundi), faces many challenges in its apostolate, said the leader of that orphanage, Sister Alodie Igiraneza, who is however happy that the problem related to the lack of water is being solved.
The Maison Canah orphanage belongs to the congregation of sisters “Daughters of Mary Our Lady of Canah” and is located precisely in Gakuro village, Gahombo commune of Kayanza province.
That orphanage, which opened in 1997, now houses 42 children, all of whom have lost their mothers in infancy.
However, Sister Igiraneza, responsible for the said orphanage, says that they face many problems in their apostolate. She cites, among other things, the lack of powdered milk called France milk intended for infants, the lack of transport means to make it easy to transport children to health facilities when ill, as well as the lack of a fence for those children to be accommodated in a secure place. She thus asks charitable souls to lend them a hand in order to find solutions to those problems.
Sister Igiraneza is delighted, however, that the problem linked to the lack of drinking water will soon be resolved because, she specifies, a businessman by the name of Vincent Ndagijimana has promised to pay six million Burundi francs to provide that orphanage with a drinking water network.
As for the communal administrator of Gahombo, Mr. Sylvestre Ntunzwenayo, he is satisfied with the achievements of the congregation of the daughters of Mary Our Lady of Canah and calls for the support of charitable souls.
