Horizon Group Limited, last week, donated livestock and handed over houses it constructed for Genocide survivors in Rukumberi sector, Ngoma district.

Fourteen families benefited from the donation.

The Horizon Group staff first paid respects to more than 35,000 victims interred at Rukumberi memorial site.

“I can’t find the right words to express my joy. May all the God’s blessings be upon you. We will always remember and pray for you so you can do more and greater  things,” Anastase Mazimpaka, the Ibuka (Genocide survivors’ umbrella)  leader in Rukumberi, said.

“I’m going to have milk in the forthcoming days,” Innocent Gisheke, 75, one of the  beneficiaries, said.

Alex Rusagara, the Horizon Group acting CEO, said “it is just the beginning.”

“We will keep helping you as long as the means allow us. This is a sign that we care about you,” Rusagara said.

He urged beneficiaries to take care of the donation.

“Remember, we are the ones to seek for the solutions to our problems,” Gerard Muzungu, the Ngoma district executive secretary, told the beneficiaries.

Gaspard Gasasira, the representative of the National Commission to Fight against the Genocide at the event, urged survivors to work hard.
