#masksmatter - Masks for Kunda Village Rwanda

Like in most areas of the world the coronavirus is also spreading fast in Kunda Village, Gisenyi in the western part of Rwanda.
Although the Rwandan government has reacted very early by closing the borders and schools to prevent the fast spread of the virus, there is much more that can be done to keep the people safe. As everywhere it`s especially the poor and lower class people, who suffer from the economic and healthwise effects of the global pandemic. 
Emmanuel Dylan, who runs a community work project called Kunda Village Ministry, is trying to find a way to support the vulnerable families in his village by handing out free masks to them.
And for that he needs YOUR help!

By donating 1€ you can provide about 3 free masks to a person in need and moreover assure a livelihood of one of the many tailors who are struggling with decreasing orders.

1€= 3 masks
5€= 15 masks
20€= 60 masks

We know that everyone is having a challenging time now, but even the smallest donation makes a difference and will be appreciated a lot. 
Please also support us by sharing this campaign!

For more information check out the website of Kunda Village Ministry https://kunda-village-ministry.jimdofree.com/ or follow it`s latest activity on Facebook or Instagram.


(You might wonder why Emmanuel doesnt organize this campaign himself: gofundme.com doesnt cooperate with Rwanda, thats why we choose a german friend to collect the money and send it directly to our project)
