About

Devastating flooding and landslides hit Rwanda in May 2020. One area that was hit particularly hard was the Nyabihu District in the northern part of the country, home of the Shyira and Vunga washing stations as well as more than 200 families who work on them.

Since then many people from across the globe have come together to help the affected communities deal with their material losses and help bring their lives back to normal. Muhako Trading Company, who works directly with the people of Nyabihu, has implemented a clear plan and goals for the funds raised. Currently, all basic needs are met, houses are being rebuilt, and crops and livestock are being replaced. The next step is to help with solutions for mitigating the effects of climate change and extreme weather events such as this flood, to improve the communities’ resilience in the future.
