The global pandemic is continuing to cause wide-ranging and long-lasting negative effects for the farmers we partner with in Rwanda and their families.

One way that the Land of a Thousand Hills community can help make an immediate impact is by donating money to go directly toward providing food and necessary supplies. Food insecurity is rising as farmers lose income since they can’t access their places of work due to travel restrictions, curfews and closed stores. Unfortunately, we’re realizing that this will be an ongoing issue because farmers don’t have the financial means to keep production running for the next harvest, which will continue to mean little future income.

Fortunately, your donation can directly help them and their families...and every little bit makes a big difference!

Name : VUGUZIGA, Assia

DOB: 1980

Location: Southern Province - Nyanza

Assia is a 41 years old, a mother of 4 children and 2 young grand children, living in the Southern Province of Nyanza, Rwanda. Assia and her husband, Saidi, married in 1997. Sadly, Saidi passed away in 2018 due to diabetic complication. He was a driver for LTH for many years and good friend. He left the family with a small two bedroom house but without land to help to with daily expenses.

As the head of the family, Assia, now sells tomatoes and other vegetables in the Nyanza market. This business generates on average 2,000 Rwf per day which makes it difficult to provide for her kids in terms of food, clothing, and school fees.

With 3 children still in high school, school fees have become a big burden for her since her husband passing. She was in heavy debt when we visited her because she refused to let her kids drop out of school.

Madame Saidi is very happy and grateful to the Do Good Initiative after receiving a check for her children's tuition fees. I addition to the school fees, FFF donations also provided the family with food for a month.  

Our non-profit, the Do Good Initiative, handles all donations. We’re working closely with our local Rwandan team on the ground to make sure all goods are effectively distributed where they’re needed most.
