The people in Rwanda are suffering from flooding they experienced in April this year that caused much damage: Some bridges were washed away by the strong current waters, landslides onto roadways and destruction of houses & fields.
These floods have affected the lives of many SDB families, especially in Nyarutovu, Nkuri and Burera; their houses, properties, cattle and fields were destroyed. Approximately 18 SDB families were in communities with about 460 other families who all lost their home. Thirty-five persons lost their lives.
“For now, they need prayers to strengthen their belief; basic materials (primary need) like clothes, food and housing (for those who lost their houses)…Thank you for your agreement to establish a partnership in prayer with us in these difficult days.”
– Jean de Dieu KARIMUTUMYE,
Legal Representative, Seventh Day Baptist Church in Rwanda
