Beneficiaries were seriously affected by disasters in 2021 which destroyed a large number of houses and other infrastructures, leaving them homeless.
After the handover of houses in the model village worth Rwf680 million, beneficiaries expressed delight and thanked Rwanda’s visionary leadership under the stewardship of President Paul Kagame which attaches great relevance to their wellbeing.
“We thank our President Paul Kagame for providing shelters. We used to live in old houses that were destroyed by disasters. I am very excited for his gift of a decent house,” said one of beneficiaries.
Nyamasheke District Vice Mayor for Social Affairs, Athanasie Mukankusi has told IGIHE that the model village will accommodate 117 disaster-hit families from Bushekeri Sector.
“Beneficiaries have already selected houses randomly. They are currently being cleaned but everyone knows his/her house. We request beneficiaries to take good care of these houses,” she said.
Assoumpta Ingabire, the Minister of State in Charge of Social Affairs said that the move is meant to facilitate residents from risky zones to move to safe places in decent shelters.
The new Bushekeri Model Village under final phases of construction in Nyarusange Cell will be completed in May 2022.
