The Rwanda Rugby Federation (RRF) on Thursday donated food to support the most vulnerable players across all active clubs in the country due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The RFF aimed to help players overcome the far-reaching effects of Covid-19 lockdown as many players lost their jobs and were unable to earn an income.
The support was given to players through their clubs such as (Kigali sharks RFC, Lions de Fer RFC, Resilience RFC, Muhanga Thunders RFC, Puma Kamonyi RFC, Burera Tigers RFC ) as clubs will then distribute food to players.
“I would like to thank all club members and the Rwanda Rugby Family to have followed the measures and guidelines to stop the spread of COVID -19 as communicated by Rwanda Ministry of Health,” said RFF president Tharcisse Kamanda.
“I urge club members and the Rwanda Rugby family to continue following the measures and guidelines to stop COVID -19 as communicated by Rwanda Ministry of health by wearing masks, washing hands, and practising good hygiene in general. Stay home, and stay safe.”
Kamanda also encouraged players to stay fit, in preparation for a sudden resumption of competition.
The Rwanda Ministry of Sports on March 11 announced that all international sporting activities had been suspended due to the outbreak.
Rwanda reported its first confirmed case of Covid-19 on March 15, and by Thursday the country had done well to limit the number of infections to 268. There are currently 138 active cases of Covid-19 in Rwanda.
