Gift Marie Louise and her mother one day at the hospice


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


Marie Louise has been a patient of our hospice for three years. Paralyzed after a fall that resulted in spinal fractures in three places, she receives the best possible rehabilitation and comprehensive support from the Sisters of the Angels. At home, she wouldn’t be able to manage unassisted. Fortunately, she has found a home at Kabuga. She is happy to be here.

We recently noticed that she was acting quite sad. After several sleepless nights, she finally opened up to us and explained that she was worried about her mother, Agnes, who had been diagnosed with cancer. Marie Louise was hoping someone from the hospice would visit her mom to see if we could help her.

Sisters decided to bring Agnes to the hospice. Her house is located on a steep hill inaccessible even to the best off road vehicles, so getting her here was quite the logistical feat. The transport was successful and the mother and daughter reunited in Kabuga a few days ago. Despite serious health problems, both ladies are very happy to finally be together. They’re surrounded by wonderful people and experience little miracles every day.

If you would like to help us continue making miraculous things happen and support one of our hospice patients in Rwanda, visit Goodworks24 now! Here you can provide one day of hospice care for Marie Louise and her mother.

Speech therapy for Gisele

Gisele's mother has not been able to find the reason why Gisele does not speak and experiences seizures during which she falls, becomes rigid and cries. Lack of money for diagnostics meant that she could only wait for the seizures to pass. We could not accept such powerlessness.
