That heavy rain demolished ten houses and devastated many crops, a check by ABP revealed.
According to Ms. Dévote Ndayizeye, administrator of Gatara commune, the aid was collected in order to implement the appeal by the President of the Republic to work together and help each other when needed. She said the most affected hills are Gisyo, Kigume and Ngendo.
Ms. Ndayizeye thanked all those who contributed so that those families could have something to chew on without having to reach out to the benefactors.

However, she said that the only problem that remains to be solved is that of roofing.
Each household received 5 kilograms of corn seed and 2.5 kilograms of beans.
