After the Bujumbura Central Market was burnt last year leaving many women merchants helpless, we were so thankful for the emergency support provided in their devastation. We were also able to help one street-woman to return to her village of origin. We helped her reunite officially with her husband before the government authorities. Another street-woman was offered a room and a small capital to start her own business and look after her children. We also offered 2 sewing machines to 2 orphan girls from the Guilgal Centre sewing training department.
