During the spread of Coronavirus in Rwanda, these workers are building our first line of defense. They are building ‘tippy taps’, which are water dispensers for hand-washing, that you can find all over Kigali. This workshop, Gakinjiro, situated in central Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, was rather crowded and the hope is that there were no infected people among the workers. These photos were taken one day before lockdown which resulted in the complete closure of the workshop, with dozens of workers subsequently left without pay to fend for themselves in a uncertain and precarious environment.
