KIRUNDO September 13th (ABP) – The First Lady of Burundi, Mrs. Angéline Ndayishimiye, at the same time representative of the foundation “Good action Umugiraneza”, visited Friday September 11, 2020 the center of missionaries of charity Sister Tereza of Calcutta of Kanyinya in Kirundo commune and province (northern Burundi), which is home to small orphaned children and elderly women, a check on the site by the ABP has revealed.
Mrs. Ndayishimiye said she organized the visit after she had been there previously and found that the center lacked many necessary things.
With a view to improving the living conditions of orphaned children and the elderly, the First Lady of Burundi gave aid consisting of food and non-food, in particular milk for children and adults, rice, flour of Maize, oil, loincloths and plastic chairs. She also gave that center an envelope which, she said, contained a sum of money that will allow the nuns to buy what they need so that the living conditions of the occupants of the center can improve.
The First Lady of Burundi called on all those who have elderly people to assist them as they also did to their children until they became adults because, she said, it is through these old people that we meet God. Mrs. Ndayishimiye asks anyone capable of helping this center to do so. “Burundians should know that assistance to the elderly is an obligation,” she insisted.
The Sister Tereza Missionaries of Charity Center in Calcutta is home to 40 elderly women, 49 orphan grandchildren and their caregivers, as well as 28 pupils that the center supports.
The representative of the center, Nun Fideline, who was delighted with that donation, warmly thanked the First Lady of Burundi and her foundation “Good Action Umugiraneza” for the support and the feeling of love towards that center.
