Dear Prayer Partner,

Greetings in Jesus Name!

I hope this note finds you well. I am pleased to inform you that I have come now from Gihinga Refugee camp in Mwaro Province to visit children. I have had a good trip but the road is very bad and the camp has been put about 70 Km from Bujumbura and 90 km from DRC. There are no many public transportation there, I went there yesterday and I had to stay in a hotel because of lack of a car to return to Bujumbura.

This new refugee camp is located at 5 km from Mwaro Province, it has been established there after the massacre that took place in Gatumba Refugee camp on 13 August 2004. Please allow me to remind you that 107 children died in that attack and 44 children wounded are still in hospital for medical treatment. The place where the new refugee camp is, there is no any car to go there, we tool a bike to get to the camp. Gihinga refugee camp has more children than Gatumba camp. I found them in critical situation, they are in a great need of physical needs especially food, clothing, shose, coats, educational materials and so on.

CCD Burundi will continue to help these children spiritually and physically. After this visit I would like to mention the urgent thing that we need in order to be able to help children in that camp. We really need a vehicle 4WD to help us in this work. Please pray that we may get a vehicle and and a new computer with its accesssories.

Please continue to pray for the funds that we need to pay for a new house where we will have our office and home for my family because my family still live in a hotel.

My God bless you. Thanks.

Yours in Christ,
