MURAMVYA, February 9th (ABP) – The gesture of supporting the elderlies, the vulnerable and the disabled is a cultural value of Burundian foreparents which deserves to be tightened at the local level, according to the governor of Muramvya province (central-west), Mr. Euphrèm Ndikumasabo.

This was said in Kiganda last week during the provincial closing of a series of trips to the five communes of the province to donate food and non-food items as part of the exchange of 2024 New Year’s best wishes with the elderlies and other vulnerable people who are in full need of help.

Governor Ndikumasabo explained that the support for the elderlies demonstrates that in their advanced age, they are in need of assistance from well-wishers, especially for the end-of-year celebrations.

According to the provincial governor,  Thinking of those people is reinforcing this cultural value which cannot normally spare anyone.

Note that quantities consisting of rice, beans, salt, flour and an envelope containing the return ticket to their families were given to 80 elderlies, vulnerable or disabled people, chosen from the 16 villages of the Kiganda commune. The NGO World Vision gave each of the people assisted a blanket and a pillow.
