Bluebonnet House to House delivery to the Elderly in Nakifuma villages

Publication1

In December 2015, KIRUCODO volunteers delivered Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church donated Humanitarian basic needs to the elderly people in Nakifuma villages. Most of the elderly are very weak to travel longer distances and because of this we decided to deliver the materials home to home unlike in Kikandwa villages where most of the elderly people walked up to the KIRUCODO offices to pick up their respective donations. Below is a photos slideshow covering the entire exercise. Again, we thank the Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of such great assistance to our communities. God Bless you. Enjoy the slideshow.
