COVID-19 and YEGO Rwanda

Rwanda on lockdown

Like much of the world, Rwandans are being told to stay home and stay safe. It’s been over a month and the lockdown deadlines continue to be extended. There have been 153 cases of COVID-19 in the country, with 84 recovered and no deaths to date.* The lockdown is working, but it’s also causing hardship for some.

While schools, churches, government offices and businesses are closed, only food shops, hospitals and pharmacies remain open. Most of the women supported by Yego survive on daily small jobs. But now they’ve lost their small businesses, have no income and are home with their children. Most of Yego’s beneficiaries have no food and need help.

Yesterday Athanasie and Emmanuel were able to deliver groceries to 10 families who were in great need. Many more need help. Your prayers are deeply appreciated. If you’d like to make a donation, please see our donation page for details.


Emmanuel and Athanasie buy groceries for Yego families.
