Manchester United fans in Rwanda, the Full Time Reds, have fund-raised Rwf 500 to support Rwanda Parents Initiative on Autism (RPIA) through which they support their children born with some malfunctioning body parts, resulting in disabilities, low self-confidence and isolation.

The donation was effected Friday December 13, 2019.

Mitari David who is president of the Full Time Reds Rwanda said that the fact that there are children who are isolated in their families because of Autism is one of the reasons that inspired them to do the charity work.

He said, “It is so sad that there are some families where children are isolated because of autism. We decided to help these children be happy.”

Mutali said that the idea came from the football team Manchester United that too helps children with autism.

The general secretary of RPIA, Kirenga Clément, said that RPIA was delighted by the fans’ act of charity, calling it an extraordinary step of intervention.

He said, “The first thing the Rwanda Parents Initiative on Autism is delighted about is seeing the community of Manchester United fans showing us love, and supporting us. They touched our hearts. We have gotten amazing friends, and we are happy for it.”
