A Partnership in Caring collaborates with Wishing Well Society to Install New Cisterns in Rwanda

A Partnership in Caring, working with the Wishing Well Society installed 12 new cisterns in

Three Cisterns being delivered

Rwanda earlier this year. The total cost of the project is 13.3 million Rwandan Francs or about $18,000 Canadian. The project is the result of many generous donors. Our partners in Rwanda, the Benebikira Sisters say the installation of the water collection tanks has had a much greater impact than originally expected because of the Corona virus.

The tanks have been placed in several locations in southern Rwanda, including the Benebikira Sisters’ Save Convent, which covers not only the needs of the Sisters, but the health centre, the local community, and a student dormitory. The tanks provide water for increased hand washing, cleaning of the dorms, and maintenance of its cow herd. It has also reduced its water bill with the city as they only water it uses from the municipality is for cooking and drinking.
In total, A Partnership in Caring, in partnership with the Wishing Well Society has installed 48 cisterns in Rwanda over the past number of years.

A Partnership in Caring Continues to Support the Most Vulnerable in Rwanda during COVID-19

An update on Fabrice whom we have been supporting since we met him a few years ago – a toddler who could only get around on all fours. He is walking, running, and going to school. Once COVID hit he was quarantined at home, rather than being in school and spending time with the Benebikira Sisters. When COVID eased, temporarily, he emerged and was unkempt, hungry, and had regressed in his developmental milestones. . He had lost weight – the Sisters were sending food, but it was uncertain how much he was getting. He and his young brother are now staying with the Sisters and getting the care they need. The young woman pictured with Fabrice is his caretaker.

Benebikira Sisters Celebrate Upgrades at Kabuga with A Partnership in Caring Society Volunteers

Today A Partnership in Caring Society volunteers Maria van Vonderen and Carolyn Rideout visited the home in Kabuga where the senior Benebikera Sisters live.
The Sisters appreciated the supplies ( Tylenol for arthritis, voltaren and bed soakers) that the volunteers delivered.
APICS partnered with the Wishing Wells Society and a water collection cistern has been added to the property.
The Sisters ( 28 Sisters and 4 workers) live in a very small home. The kitchen is outside and at the back of the property. They mostly cook with wood.
A new fence has been added to the property increasing the security of the Sisters.
The Sisters were very happy to celebrate with Carolyn and Maria today.
