During July, the RCEF Staff in Kigali reported to us that our students were not receiving sufficient food to remain healthy enough to attend school. One of our students, Lewis, was in the hospital. RCEF quickly raised money and sent it to Rwanda to supply food for our children. We are giving the families of day students supplemental food, and we are suppling a daily breakfast for high school students through their boarding schools.
Lesson learned – feed our students first then educate them.
Jeanine Mukarubega, RCEF Director, is helping with the distribution of food.
