Our Story

Comfort Rwanda   was established in 1999 to help and encourage genocide survivors on their road to recovery after the tiny east African country of Rwanda was devastated by the worst genocide the world has ever seen. Starting on April 7th 1994 more than one million Rwandans were systematically and brutally massacred in 100 days, often enduring unspeakable atrocities before being killed or left to die. Most of those who survived endured or witnessed horrific events; the murder of family and friends, rape, beatings, being buried or burned alive or hiding for weeks in latrine pits or swamps.  Orphan- and widowhood, trauma, poverty, homelessness, physical injury, displacement, division, isolation and missed education are a few of the consequences of this tragic event. Now known as Comfort Rwanda & Congo, in view of expanding our work to include D.R. Congo, we work together with Rwandan and Congolese partners and are committed to countering these consequences and bringing a hope and a future to the people of Rwanda & Congo. Over the years Comfort Rwanda & Congo has built up excellent relationships with partners in Rwanda; The Living Church, Good News International, and Solace Ministries as well as Comfort Congo just over the border in North Kivu, D.R. Congo. This enables us to discuss funding needs, view the effectiveness of projects, plan for the long term future, meet emergencies if they arise and target the most needy. 

Current projects include: 

  • Street Kids Rescue programme
  • Support for primary and secondary education
  • Vocational Training for ex-street children and orphans 
  • Building Schools
  • University funding for genocide survivors
  • Sponsorship of survivors      
  • House building for Healing & Reconciliation groups and survivors groups
  • Provision of cattle and goats to genocide survivors
  • Development of a cattle breeding herd
  • Provision of wells
  • Agricultural support for survivors’ communities
  • Development of income generating activities amongst poor sectors of society
  • Rwandan craft import and sales
  • Training Rwandan Pastors
  • Support for refugees in DR Congo
  • Funding repair surgery for rape victims in DR Congo
  • Building a maternity facility in DR Congo
  • Support for ex-child soldiers in DR Congo 
  • Agricultural support for refugees and displaced people in DR Congo

If you make a gift to Comfort Rwanda we will ensure that 100% of what we receive will go directly to Rwanda or DR Congo to be used where most needed.

Got any Questions

See our FAQs or visit the Help Centre for more resources

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?

No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.

Why do the retailers make a donation?

When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.

Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?

There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.

How much of the donation does GoRaise take?

We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.

Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?

Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.

How do we get paid?

You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
