Emergency Relief Programs


Wings of Hope for Africa Emergency Relief Assistance

Our Emergency Relief Program is designed to provide assistance to individuals or families in personal distress, or who are victims of a physical disaster.  In 2014, we provided emergency relief to victims of flooding in Buterere, Burundi, by supplying them with basics such as blankets, clothing, bedding, food and clean water, as well as by creating mitigation plans for affected crops and recouping losses.

In July 2016, we delivered supplies to Burundian refugees during our long-awaited trip to Rwanda’s largest refugee settlement, the Mahama Camp. We delivered over 100 mattresses, plus clothing, shoes, and personal hygiene products for the Burundian refugees. We also did our absolute best to bring a ray of hope and optimism to those in living in desperate conditions - showing them that the world knows and cares about them.

The Mahama refugee camp is currently housing thousands of Burundian refugees, 75% of which are women and children.  The site was allocated by the Government of Rwanda on 50 hectares of land in the Mahama sector of Kirehe District, and is able to host 20,000 people.
