Inshuti z'Abakene

On Aug 21 we will (finally!) get married. Many people have very kindly asked us if we have a wedding registry or list, or whether they can send us a contribution toward our wedding. Our preference would really be for people to make a contribution to a cause in Rwanda that is close to our hearts. We are in a very fortunate position, but many people around us here in Kigali aren’t as lucky as we are, and covid has caused extra hardship for people.

We’d love it if anyone planning to contribute would consider instead making a donation towards a home for children with special needs here in Kigali. “Inshuti z’Abakene” is a centre that is home to 25 kids living with severe mental and intellectual disabilities. It also provides day care services to almost a hundred children living with their families in the surrounding areas. They receive less than €2,000 in state support each year so are almost fully reliant on people’s goodwill to provide the kids with food, beds, education, health services and any other care they need.

We spoke to the centre recently, at the moment they are badly in need of new mattresses for the children, as well as other basic essentials. We’ll make sure that any donation made is handed over fully to the centre.
