Six tons of varied food collected through local solidarity committees in various communes of Cibitoke province (north-west) were distributed last Saturday to 400 families who lost their homes, following a rain mixed with strong winds that fell on January 17th in Cibitoke zone of Rugombo commune. That aid consisting of rice, maize, beans, potatoes and sweet potatoes was collected after an appeal for solidarity from the governor of Cibitoke province, Mr. Joseph Iteriteka, after that disaster. Each family received two packets of food. The governor still appreciates the spirit of solidarity that characterized his people who had even sheltered those who lost their homes. He again appealed to the government and NGOs for a helping hand to his province that cannot meet on its own all the needs of those affected people. The beneficiaries of the aid welcomed that act. It should be noted that the aid was distributed after the cleaning of a main channel discharging rainwater from the Cibitoke center, a very narrow channel that the same people want to see enlarged.
