Pigs breeding project in the 66 villages of Lurhala Sector conducted by HANDS

The territory of Walungu, particularly in the Lurhala group, is facing an acute food crisis. This situation is partly linked to several important factors. These include difficult physical and environmental conditions, poor availability of arable land, lack of funding for agricultural activities, low agricultural production, land grabbing by elites (political, religious, military, etc.), recurrent insecurity, etc. This unfortunate situation is at the root of several scourges. However, today the local population is a victim of extreme hunger, high morbidity rate, growing illiteracy, etc.

For this reason, the organization HANDS through its agro pastoral project, has thought to initiate a pig breeding project in the 66 villages of the grouping of Lurhala, territory of Walungu. This being the case, and given the financial constraints, we thought of first serving 24 pilot villages before extending the project to the whole of the Lurhala group in particular and to the whole of Walungu territory in general. 

HANDS being a philanthropic organization, we intervene in various fields, including livestock breeding. Indeed, after having proceeded to the training of May 17, 2022 of the beneficiaries of our project of breeding of pigs, we assigned ourselves to make a decent on June 04, 2022 for the distribution of these pigs to the pilot farmers who benefited from this training. Thus, through the said training, these beneficiaries were equipped with the necessary knowledge to take care of their pigs and aspire to the expected results in the days to come.

In view of this, these pictures illustrate very well in terms of Objectively Verifiable Indicators (OVI) the progress of this activity.   However, two categories of stakeholders were present during this day. In particular, the beneficiaries (CIKALA) and the distributors who are members of the HANDS Coordination sent to the field by the Board of Directors to make this activity effective.

However, all doors are open to people who would like to support this humanitarian work and of such great importance to reduce poverty and food insecurity in households of Lurhala in particular and the territory of Walungu in general.

Earthquake damage to school in South Kivu

Earthquake damage to school in South Kivu

December 8, 2017 an urgent message reached us from our friends at the school project in the village of Ciriri, South Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Emmanuel camunani Ndagano, who is one of the teachers and an administrator at the school project in South Kivu reported earlier by e-mail that an earthquake has hit the region on December 7 at around 1:00 a.m..

This earthquake had a magnitude of 4 on the Richter scale, according to Emmanuel. The area does see more earthquakes, but now there have been a few in a short time span.

Assani Muhanuzi in Winkler, Manitoba Canada has been in touch with those on the ground and he reported that, with God’s blessings, nobody at the school project got hurt in the quake.

The school has sustained some minor damage, most of it because there is no proper foundation under the building. It is our understanding that it is safe for classes to continue however, the foundation to the building will have to be strengthened and this needs to be done so it will withstand any possible future geo-structural movement or tremors.

The pictures we are showing here give an impression of the dire need for properly engineered foundation, or at least a significant and lasting base for the building to be secured on and in.

During the Christmas school break, some work will be done on this and a better foundation will be made.

Assani will ask what is needed at short notice.

We like to call on any one who reads this to assist financially, however small your contribution may be. Urgent funding is needed, so this next step towards the foundation work can take place.

Funding can be done in a number of ways. A cheque made out to Hope For All Nations Development and Sustainability (or cash) can be given to Assani Muhanuzi at Shamrock Bay 1380 in Winkler, Manitoba (T6W1N9), or you can deposit it at the CIBC bank on 309 Main Street in Winkler, MB R6W 4B5.

At this stage there is no tax receipt possible, but we count on your understanding and care for the need at the school project.

Above all, please keep the children and the communities in South Kivu in your prayers.

In Christ,

“Akanyunyi kanayirize, karhana habe omurhi kalala ko.”
