Story

On Sunday 27 January, Bujumbura central market burnt to the ground. The survival of five thousand families depends on this market in the capital of Burundi. One of them is Dieudonne Nahimana, who runs our partner organisation New Generation, which works with street children to give them a future full of hope.

Dieudonne, a former street child himself, gets no salary for his work. His family survive through his wife Maryam’s shop in the market. Her shop was destroyed, along with all of her stock, in the fire.

All of us at Street Action are extremely concerned as to how he can possibly continue his work under such circumstances. We are also concerned about the knock-on effect this fire will have on the country, food prices in particular and the future for New Generation and their great work with street children.
Please support our appeal to support our partner in Burundi: to help overcome the loss that they have suffered and provide for them in the coming months, as the country deals with the economic and social impact of its own loss.
