Hope and healing in Burundi’s most remote communities 

Over the summer months you raised an amazing £12,200 towards a brand-new vehicle for our Burundi team.

Over the summer months you raised an amazing £12,200 towards a brand-new vehicle for our Burundi team. This means we can travel to remote parts of Burundi and support more people in some of the hardest to reach communities. Thank you so much! 

Burundi is a small country with a history of war and conflict. Years of violence and unrest have left people in extreme poverty and communities divided. It’s unsurprising that people are carrying emotional and psychological wounds. Many people live with severe depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.   

Many refugees returning to Burundi find that their homes and livelihoods have been destroyed. They face a daily struggle for food, water and healthcare. 

Your support means that practical help and psychological treatment is being provided to those who have suffered the most. These are often people on the margins of society – disabled people, women, and victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse.  

Your generosity means that people’s lives are being changed, people like Ndikumana. Like so many in her country, she has experienced incredible hardship. But her challenges have been even more extreme on account of being a woman, and a dwarf. Read Ndikumana story.

Because you have helped us buy this new vehicle, we can reach more people like Ndikumana. Your loving and prompt response means that the team had the vehicle ahead of the Autumn months. Heavy rainfall in Burundi starts in early October and journeys to remote areas become even more difficult. Because of your wonderful support, more people can find healing. More communities can live together in peace and look forward to a future free from fear.
