Due to the coronavirus pandemic, global tourism has been severely impacted – therefore we are facilitating emergency food drives to those most vulnerable within our neighbouring communities.
In Rwanda we have been facilitating food drives since April, with a total of 24 weekly donations; we support a number of unmarried mothers from the Turengerubuzima Women’s Sewing Group and their dependents in the immediate area of Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge. In addition to this, we have rebuilt Mama Speciose’s house which has spawned additional community-driven groups to achieve five further similar home rebuilds within the area.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the Mara Rianda Charitable Trust, the Chairman’s Foundation via the Wilderness Trust, Margot Ragget, all our valued guests, travel partners, our brilliant team of staff and our many benefactors for all your kind support.
Please take a look at our Community Report for 2020 which highlights some very positive figures which we should all be proud of.
If you would like to help us continue with the food drives, please do make a donation (however big or small), through our secure online payment link . Thank you so much!
