KIGALI - Peace and Love Proclaimers (PLP), an organisation that is comprised of Rwandan youths over the weekend donated food stuffs and materials worth Rwf12m to Niboye Peace Village, an estate of Child Headed Households (CHHs).

In an interview with The New Times Marc Gwamaka head of PLP expressed gratitude to the organisation’s members and other partners who made this exercise possible and called upon more people to contribute to the welfare of vulnerable children.

“These children sometimes feel the vacuum of love and comfort that would have been provided by their parents, we need to be spending more time with them such that they don’t feel isolated,” he said.

“We are so grateful that our brothers and sisters from PLP always think about us, the comfort, advise and love that they always give us means a lot…we will not let anyone down and we are growing up to also help others,” Jean Marie Vianney Gatana, said on behalf of the orphans.

ADRA Rwanda and Chez Vennant supermarket contributed a total of Rwf 5 million and the rest came from individual contributions from PLP members most of whom are of school going age.

The Niboye Peace Village is made up of 24 households each accommodating up to 5 orphans many of who were orphaned by the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi.
