MTN Rwanda has handed over a cheque worth Rwf 3 million to support the families of vulnerable ex-combatants under the Rwanda Demobilization and Reintegration Commission umbrella.

The cheque was received by the Minister of Local Government (MINALOC), Francis Kaboneka at the Ministry’s offices in Kacyiru.

“This gesture is part of the company’s long tradition of giving back to society because we at MTN Rwanda, realize and understand the importance of continued support towards the communities where we operate in a sustainable way,” said MTN’s Chief Executive Officer, Gunter Engling at the handover ceremony.

Honourable Kaboneka thanked MTN for its efforts and commitment in supporting these families.

According to Engling, MTN has supported a number of initiatives in the areas of Education, Health, Economic empowerment, Environment and Community Development through its CSR vehicle, MTN Foundation. The Foundation was created with a focus on giving back to society and “Impacting the quality of lives in our communities” in a meaningful way.
