Rwanda charity update


Gemma Creech has thanked everyone for their charity fundraising efforts for a cause that is close to her heart.


Gemma, along with friends from Brave Church, Oswaldtwistle, headed to Rwanda in February to take part in the Compassion Rwanda project.


The church sponsors a number of children in Rwanda, helping to provide support including nutrition, medicine and vocational training.


To support her, Springhill Care Home held various fundraising events including a non-uniform day, party, and a sponsored walk.


The trip has now taken place and Gemma has given us an update on how the trip went, and the impact it had.


Gemma said: “Compassion RwandaBrave Church and ourselves, are extremely grateful for all the contributions and fundraising which were provided by Springhill Care. The difference they make to families in extreme poverty cannot be underestimated.


“For ourselves, the trip was life-changing and we aim to attempt to get back to Rwanda in the coming years. The level of poverty there is shocking and as well as sponsoring another child, we will aim to attempt to raise money in the future to provide ways in which families can provide an income to find ways out of poverty, or provide food on the table.”


Among the support provided by Compassion Rwanda during the visit were special long-lasting shoes for children, a new toilet block and emergency equipment such as mosquito nets.


During the trip the group visited the capital city of Kigali along with the country’s south western mountain ranges.


Gemma added: “Their joy at our visiting and donations was humbling. We will never forget the impact that the trip as had on all of us and most importantly, the Rwandans.”
