    Making a shelter a home

    Day 32

    A Safe and Secure Home

    Today, Changemakers 365 brings us to Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement. Mr. Amani Musa, a refugee recently relocated to a new village in Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement, lives with his three daughters. He and his daughters were living in dilapidated shelter; covered by a tarp and maize-stems to shield them from the cold in the night. The house was much too small for a family of this size and was in need of some serious improvements.

    Upon seeing the shelter Amani and his family were living in, our team knew what they had to do. We had to provide a new shelter. One that can fit his family and provide relief from the cold.

    “ALIGHT has given me a home with two bedrooms and a sitting room; one room for the girls and the other for me and my son. I did not know that God was bringing a blessing to me through Alight and I cannot believe how they got to know about my condition. I am so grateful to Alight. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!” said Mr. Amani.

    Great job team and way to display what having a heart of compassion and swiftly responding to the needs of customers like Mr. Amani can look like!
