Aid has been granted to vulnerable families in the Gatumba zone


Nov 7, 2023

BUJUMBURA, November 7th (ABP) – The Espérance Ndoricimpa foundation granted aid on Saturday, November 4, 2023, consisting of a bicycle, a mattress, clothes, tablecloths, food and an envelope worth paying six months’ rent, to a poorest family of four children residing in the Gatumba zone, Mutimbuzi commune of Bujumbura province.

The representative of that foundation in Burundi, Mrs. Claudia Nininahazwe, indicated that the members of the Espérance Ndoricimpa foundation made that gesture of love to show sympathy towards people living a precarious life.

According to her, as long as we have members to work, we can do what is necessary, each according to our capacity, to feed the poor. This is why this foundation has the mission of helping vulnerable people so that they can have food and get out of this situation. No one can be vulnerable forever except the oldest people, she stressed.

Mrs. Nininahazwe said the Espérance Ndoricimpa Foundation chose that family because the parents lived in a one-room tent with their children. The foundation helped that family with a very difficult life with money to pay the rent and move out of the tent. The members of that foundation also gave a bicycle to the father of the family to do the bicycle taxi in order to have money every day. The mother of the family also received a sum of money as capital to start a small business.

Mrs. Nininahazwe said that the Esperance Ndoricimpa Foundation is a charitable organization with 36 members from different churches. It was founded by the passionate Burundian Christian singer who lives in Canada, Mrs. Espérance Ndoricimpa, with the aim of assisting those in need such as orphans, widows and the most vulnerable people.

She add that this foundation was formed for all without profile but only for sincere love which is rooted in the word of God drawn from the epistle of Saint Paul the apostle to the Corinthians 13:1-8.

The father of the family beneficiary of the aid, Mr. Jean Bosco Sindihebura, appreciated that act to the highest degree “We are happy because this assistance will allow us to improve our daily life since life is hard without a job”, he pointed out.

To conclude, Mrs. Nininahazwe affirmed that participating in acts of charity comes from the desire to share the little we have with the most deprived people and not from having more financial means.
