World Vision International Burundi has been authorised by the Government of Burundi to resume operations in the country after 10 days of suspension of INGO activities for three months.
A letter received from the ministry of Home Affairs today (11 October 2018) at World Vision’s office in Bujumbura says (in translation): Having found that all the required documents have been presented to us, I have the honour to bring to your attention that the Foreign Non-Governmental Organization "World Vision International Burundi" is authorised to resume its activities.
The National Director for World Vision International Burundi, Marthe Mbengue said she was grateful that the government authorised the organisation to resume operations for the wellbeing of the most vulnerable children and communities in Burundi. We are pleased to fulfil our mandate and promise of building brighter futures for vulnerable children.
