In recent years, the Rwandan government has established rather strict building code requirements. Part of the reason for this is an effort to eliminate what are called shanty churches, which are often unsafe. ByAfrican standards, these restrictions are quite demanding. Right now, theReformed Lutheran Church of Rwanda (RLCR) has only one facility in operation, the Bufunda church. This facility was also in danger of being shut down for failing to meet property size requirements and run-off water requirements.Local officials gave them some time to address the problem, and MW3 approved funds for the purchase of two adjoining parcels of land that allowed them to meet the boundary requirements and for the addition of gutters and cisterns for the collection of run-off water. A recent storm also caused some damage to the roof on an outbuilding used for storage and food preparation, and funds were also provided to repair the damaged building.
