Sponsorships are a unique opportunity to change lives of people who are very much dependent on our help. Iriba Shalom International e.V. finds sponsors for their partnership organisation in Rwanda who well know the people and situation on the spot and therefore are able to choose the people in greatest need. Owing to the extreme situation in Rwanda caused by the genocide in 1994 there are people like:
widows who lost their husbands and sons;
the elderly who still suffer from mental and physical wounds;
children and young people who grow up in grinding poverty and whose parents struggle with the effects of the genocide
They need our help. Becoming a sponsor changes the life of a needy person and often indirectly also the life of their families and friends.
