Kilmacow Share 2000
The people of Kilmacow are conscious that many people around the world live in less fortunate circumstances than those that prevail in Kilmacow, do not have the same access to resources nor do they enjoy the same quality of life that is experienced in Kilmacow. Local people wish to give practical expression to their sense of concern and have chosen to undertake a project to help house 60 families in Gikongoro, a small village in South West Rwanda. The estimated cost
of this project is 5,500.
The project is to be undertaken in conjunction with the Medical Missionaries of Mary who have a base in Rwanda and thus it also represents a tangible and effective acknowledgement of the contribution of the Medical Missionaries of Mary to the well-being of people in the residential home at Rosedale in Kimacow.
