Clotilda is all smiles thanks to you


Rwanda is one of the smallest countries on the African continent, and the most densely populated one. There are around 463 inhabitants per 1km2 here! Due to its natural landscape, Rwanda is sometimes referred to as a land of a thousand hills, and due to its history, also a land of a thousand problems.

  • around 12 million inhabitants
  • in 1994, it was a place of genocide – in 100 days, about 1 million people of the Tutsi tribe were murdered, 2 million escaped from the country
  • agricultural country – farming generates about 63% of income from export (including coffee, tea, bananas)
In 2021, we organized long-term palliative care for


persons in the country


Clotilda has been staying in the hospice in Rwanda for the past few months. Her children have all gone abroad to start new lives. As excited as she was about them gaining independence, she has also been left alone. The problems began when she got cancer. Her friends and neighbors initially tried to help her out as much as possible, but they weren’t able to offer her the care she needed. Weakened by her illness, at times she didn’t even have the energy to cook food for herself, and was forced to drink sugar water just to tide her over.

The care she has been receiving from the Sisters of Angels seems like paradise in comparison. Clotilda is so thankful for the support she begins every day by expressing her joy, giving out “Yambi, yambi” – hugs – to the staff. Unfortunately, since the pandemic forced everyone to limit social contact, she can no longer be as affectionate.

Clotilda loves to read and draw and is always smiling. Today, she extends her hugs and smiles to you – it is thanks to you, namely, that the hospice, the only such facility in the entire country, can continue operating. Thanks to your support we can pay the staff and buy food and medication. Last year your generosity allowed us to offer palliative care to 35 patients.

We hope you have a great Sunday and that you will continue to brighten the days of Clotilda and other terminally ill patients.
