Unexpected heavy rains between January and May this year, killed several citizens and destroyed property. It is against this background that Caritas Kigali is urging support for disaster victims to be re-integrated back to their normal life since the initial intervention efforts didn’t help them that much.

Father Twizeyumuremyi Donatien Said that “Caritas Kigali in his primary mission to assist people in need, mindful of the state of emergency in which are the victims of the disasters resulting from the torrential rains of March, April and May 2018 in Rwanda”.

Caritas Kigali Also is developing the present short note to send it to any interested donor for possible intervention in favor of the victims’ families.

At the national level, the statistics of the MIDIMAR (Ministry of Disaster Management and Refugee Affairs) to April 30, 2018 gave a following situation 116 people dead, 207 people traumatized, 4130 damaged houses, 1 674 destroyed houses, 705 dead animals (big and small livestock), 18 housing for livestock destroyed, 12 damaged access roads, 33 destroyed bridges, 7 buildings of churches damaged, 13 schools destroyed, 542 hectares of farms damaged.

Also the Archdiocese of Kigali was affected by the heavy rains in which several housing structures were damaged and agricultural produce destroyed on the pieces of land amounting to 20 hectares

The 15/05/2018 reports from 15 parishes of 30 (reports for 15 other parishes are waiting) gave a following situation: 854 damaged buildings and 20 hectares of farms damaged.

Caritas Kigali, in collaboration with disaster, proceeded to the identification of urgent needs relating hardware and building materials for the rehabilitation of damaged buildings (bricks adobes, rubble, sand, cement, doors, windows, poles, nails, metal sheets) and drew up an estimated and quantitative quote following:
