Rwandans who were expelled from Tanzania and settled in Bugesera District yesterday received assorted food items worth Rwf27 million.

The food was donated by Direct Aid Project Rwanda, formerly known as African Muslims Agency, in collaboration with the district’s Joint Action Development Forum (JADF).

Al Hadji Saleh, the Direct Aid centre director in Bugesera, said the donation was part of the many activities planned to help the group cope with their eviction.

“We have been holding meetings with members of the joint action development forum to see what we can do together to help these people to integrate and this is one of many outcomes from those meetings,” said Saleh, promising more aid.
