Rwanda: COVID-19 More Challenging for Children With Disabilities - Report

Abraham Uwimana - All Africa

Jeanne Uwamariya's firstborn Gloria Abijuru was born with a physical disability. The father to her children with whom they were not legally married abandoned his family when Abijuru was just 3 years old.

This meant that Uwamariya would shoulder all the responsibilities of fending for the children alone.

Challenged by domestic pressures, she was forced to withdraw Abijuru from school more especially because it was far away from their home.
