The Rwanda Formed Police Unit (RWAFPU5) contingent on a peacekeeping mission in Haiti, on Sunday, shared the Easter joy with orphans of Centre Communitaire Perpetuel Secours and Orphelinat in Jeremie, where they also donated an assortment of foodstuff and scholastic materials.

The Rwandan peacekeepers held a get-together celebration and had lunch with the 25 orphans.

The donation included rice, beverages, biscuits, clothing, shoes and footballs.

They were handed over by the RWAFPU5 contingent commander, Bruce Munyambo.

The outreach programme came less than a week after the peacekeepers also unblocked the main road that connects the town of Jeremie to the capital Port Au Prince and other cities, which had been affected by mudslides and floods.

The Director of the orphanage centre, Elaine Moussignac, thanked the Rwandan peacekeepers for reaching out to the orphans.

"Today was a pleasure for these children to have spent the Easter day with the Rwandan contingent. You have been our good partners for quite a long time and we will always be grateful for your continued support,” Elaine said.

Rwanda FPU has been providing humanitarian assistance to the orphanage as well as a prison, including providing them with clean water.
