Red Cross Rwanda (RCR) on Friday donated 54 cows to residents of Muramira sector of Kayonza district as a way of helping them fight against poverty.
Red Cross president, Dr. Bernard Nzigiye, said that the cows cost Rwf 16.
Yussuf Mugiraneza, Executive Secretary Eastern province, who also attended the event reminded residents of their role in determining the right beneficiaries of the project.
“This project is meant for only the poor. As residents you are meant to report any beneficiary who may take advantage of getting a cow yet they don’t merit,” Mugiraneza said.
