‘Uwamugaye w’Umunyarwanda Arakirwa’ (HRD) is an association of disabled children in Muhanga town. HRD is requesting government support because since inception, the association has been relying on meager financial means. Most of its supporters reduced their funds following recent world economic crisis.
HRD caters for over 200 children who have different disabilities ranging from mental to disabled limbs and some who were infected with HIV/AIDS from birth.
Leoncie Kamwezi, the coordinator of the project also the founder says that she takes care of all the expenses alone yet she’s working for a good cause.
She says that the government should help her deal with some expenses like paying health insurances for all children. Liliane Foundation, an Italian organization which used to pay for them has reduced funds by 50%.
A vocational training center which used to teach technical skills to children also closed down for lacking funds. The founder says she is in deep need of financial support especially because she started the project with a bank loan.
