Just two last things to mention today about the 2013 trip team to Kivuruga, Rwanda. Please plan to come back and visit our blog, as we will continue to have updates for all those who want to follow future Our Response activities and events.
You may remember that before the team left, Pastor Joel of Pine City Evangelical Free Church headed up a collection of raincoats for the team to take to the HIV/AIDS caregivers in Kivuruga. When the weather is rainy, caregivers who are walking or bicycling to see their patients could really use some protection! Almost 100 raincoats were gathered and then presented to Florence, who heads up the program. By the look on her face, it looks like she is being presented with those raincoats in this photo. Thanks to all of you who participated and gave!
Steve writes, “I love Florence! My number one Rwandan hero.”
The team is scheduled to return today. They have been in a beautiful country.
Full of beautiful people.
A country and a people who face many challenges.
