The donation, according to RDO officials, would help maize farmers in the district during the harvest period.
The head of RDO, Eugene Rwibasira urged farmers to work hard to ensure self reliance.
“This donation adds up to what you are doing. But the most important thing you need is to work hard and become self reliant,” he said.The beneficiaries welcomed the donation.
“These wheelbarrows will make transportation easier,” said Emanuel Muganga, one of the beneficiaries from Remera Sector.
He added some parents in the area prevented their children from going to school to help them during the harvest period.
The district vice Mayor in charge of finance and economic development, Isaie Habarurema asked beneficiaries to safeguard the wheelbarrows.
“Let me hope that this donation will be useful to you. You should take good care of them,” he said.
