For example, from 1995 to 1998, FXB Rwanda constructed 528 houses for homeless families providing shelter for 2600 people. About fifty children from centers for unaccompanied children were able to find a host family while AIDs prevention sessions were held for the communities of Rutobwe and Nyamabuye in the Southern Province.
