"WASH" - a project of water and sanitation for Rubirizi village

Yesterday we celebrated! Now the final part of the WASH project is accomplished, a water pump
is in place in Rubirizi! Thank you dear friends for this wonderful gift- a whole village can now
benefit from clean water and the women can get water in the village and feel safe.

Here is a little film. Enjoy!  (if you want it in high quality, just let us know and we´ll send it to you)

We say our farewells

It is now confirmed that Major Robert, the Project Officer and I, Major Anna-Maria, the Sponsorship Secretary, will go back home on June 12. During this month we will pack and arrange for furnishing to be transported, do finale reporting and visit as many centers as possible to say our farewells. If you do not
get a visit it is not because we do not want to come, but because there are many places to visit and we
can´t do them all.

Thank you, staff at preschools,  officers,  colleagues in The Salvation Army and donors for the support you
have given during these two years. We are blessed and it is difficult somehow to summerize, but we will try to write something about it in the coming weeks.

Take care, dear friends and keep supporting the Rwanda and Burundi Command, your help is much appreciated, not because it is good to get support, but that all we do changes lives, villages and the future,
ït is all for real :)

Captain Violet who comes from Kenya will contiue the work and if you dear redare think this blog is helping
you to get all the information you need, please let the Command know- and maybe this can continue.
I will do my very best to assist Captain Violet in this work - but it depends on you and the Command...
If you let us know if this is a good media for information andfor donor territories; does this help you in your
work, then let us know, :)

A much anticipated welcome!

Yes, oh, how we have prayed and hoped - and it has now come true! Thank you, Lord!
On Thursday late night,we finally received the Captains from Kenya West Territory.
So today we greeted them both at the section Sunday meeting at Kigali Central Corps.
After we sat down and enjoyed a soda together, before going for a late lunch in the city.

Captain Violet is the new Sponsorship Secretary and will now move in to my office and
take care of all sponsorship and sponsorship projects. I and my husband will end our
deployment and return back home to Sweden some time in June, date is still not set.

Captain Violet is a blessing come true!.
This means that all of our Salvation Army donors in other contries will be able to have a
contact here that can run all projects and develop child sponsorship in the Rwanda and
Burundi Command :)

Captain Leonard is a blessing come true, too!
He will be the Finance Secretary and that will help us so much also. He can
assist with all administration and accountability for projects so we can do right by our donors
and do the very best we can to do "transparancy and accountability".

A presentation will come, have patience, dear sponsors, we will be right back- First we will
introduce the Captains to their work during this week and after that, some changes and more
info will be done on the blog.
