Rwanda Cricket Association (RCA) provided food and other essential necessities to 100 families as help in the lockdown times as part of a strategy to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, an event that took place on Saturday, April 25, 2020.

The 100 families donated to the charity are worth 3 million Frw, which is normally addressed to the wider Cricket Association, including the players of the game, where each family received a grant worth 30,000 Frw.

RCA Director of Operations, Byiringiro Emmanuel said: "It is an activity we started by first looking at poor families in these days because we usually monitor their livelihoods and the cooperation of their parents. Many parents are starting to get our message across. We selected 100 families from different places, where our players play,”

“The most important thing is that we are committed and we work together. We have to try our best, we have the resource and can afford to give and make a difference.”

Since the lockdown started on March 21, 2020, the Government of Rwanda has begun to assist vulnerable families, with the assistance of various organizations or individuals.
