We brought two suitcases full of the things we will need like meds, sheets, towels, and of course Candy! On the first days when the food from home would come, we would take it all like Christmas morning and categorize it on the floor. We would eat as much as our stomachs could take which was not much. I found it strange and interesting that some candy and Doritos would burn our mouths.
Everyone would have a stomach ache the next day as well. Keep in mind we were only able to bring over the packaged foods and the stuff we couldn’t get in Kigali like cheese powder for Mac and Cheese and chocolates and chips and such.
A big thank you to everyone sending boxes of USA stuff to us! These boxes have been a huge blessing. The little things we can’t find here and the items that make it feel like home are priceless. Thank you so so much.
