Burundi Subsistence Farmer, Adrien Nimpagaritse, Donates Maize to Ukrainian Refugees – An Extraordinary Story of Empathy and Humanity

Text by David Himbara
Adrien Nimpagaritse, a Burundian subsistence farmer

One of the most profound statements about humanity comes from Dalai Lama – “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.”

I was reminded of these beautiful words by the touching BBC story about a Burundian subsistence farmer named Adrien Nimpagaritse. Adrien is donating 100kg of his maize crop to the Ukrainian refugees fleeing the Russian invasion and atrocities in their homeland.

The 30-year old Nimpagaritse was a four-year-old orphan when he himself became a refugee in Tanzania after fleeing ethnic violence, returning to homeland, Burundi, 11 years after.

Nimpagaritse explained to the BBC what motivated him to donate his maize to Ukrainian refugees:As a former refugee myself, I thought of offering some help. I am a peasant farmer, I don’t have much to give but I have a loving heart. Looking at the pictures, I saw women and children dying. I don’t have a voice to contribute in bringing solution to the conflict, but I can donate some of what I have cultivated as a token of love.”

Nimpagaritse made my day – may God bless him for his empathy and love of humanity.❤️❤️
