“We were depressed and scared thinking of how our children would survive. Upon reaching Rwanda, we gained courage depending on how we were welcomed. Our children get milk and everything else,” says Godfrey Kagenzi, one of the returnees.

 The returnees were moved from the temporary camp to comfortable homes in Nemba and Rwerere sectors as the district plans to construct for them own residential starting February ,2014.

Burera district has provided food stuff and utensils countless times, to the returnees.

Recently, the district donated 29 mattresses, 120 kilograms of flour, 150 kilograms of beans, 20 litres of cooking oil plus kitchen material.

The returnees were initially received in Kiyanzi and Ziri camps in Kayonza district but are being reintegrated in different districts.
