Cyrwa 2013 : Emmanuel Hitimana

Last year this young man initiated a campaign on social media, calling upon the public to assist our brothers and sisters in the Horn of Africa. Within 24 hours, he had support from 300 people on Facebook, willing to contribute to this campaign.

Armed with passion and the capacity to empathize with suffering people even beyond the borders of Rwanda this young Rwandan raised $ 60,000, the equivalent of 33.6 million Rwandan francs under the Rwanda for Somalia Campaign.

For his compassion, sensitivity and his ability to mobilize community around a cause, Imbuto Foundation presents the CYRWA 2013 Award to Emmanuel Hitimana.
