KIRUNDO January 24th (ABP) – The provincial administration of Kirundo (northern Burundi) is committed to supporting centers that house the vulnerable, including the Kanyinya disabled center located in Kirundo commune and province (northern Burundi) which accommodate a lot of disabled children because, said the provincial governor, those centers are supporting the government in projects aimed at ensuring the well-being of the people.

That message was delivered on Saturday January 20, 2024 by the governor of Kirundo, Police Colonel Victor Segasago, during the Christmas and New Year greetings party organized in the grounds of the Kanyinya disabled center, with the intention of those disabled children, noted the ABP on site.

Governor Segasago promised that within a year, the provincial administration will help resolve the drinking water problem observed in that center.

As the center has set itself the objective of contributing to the increase in agro-pastoral production, the governor of Kirundo also promised to provide rabbits. At the same time, the governor granted that center for the disabled aid consisting of food and non-food items worth more than 2 million Burundian francs.

The bishop of the Catholic diocese of Muyinga, Mgr. Joachim Ntahondereye, for his part, thanked the Bene Teresa sisters who accommodate those children, specifying that it is a work which honors their congregation and the Catholic Church in general. Mgr Ntahondereye also praised the effort of the laity who continue to support that center for the disabled in Kanyinya. If it were not for the benefactors, the center would not be able to continue serving those children, he said.

The head of the center, Sister Bénigne Suavis Nduwimana, warmly thanked all those who are concerned about the lives of those children, while asking them to stay by their side in order to continue to face the challenges that haunt the center, in particular the rehabilitation of infrastructures which are very old.
