The hospice in Kabuga is a place full of stories

Rwanda

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.

Overview:
  • 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

31

persons in the country

The hospice in Kabuga, the first and so far only one in Rwanda, is a place full of stories, laughter and tears. Our residents come here sometimes for several years and sometimes only for a few days – but it is thanks to you that they can live their last moments with dignity.

We want you to remember them. We asked them today what their advice is to the younger generation and what is most important to them. It is thanks to you that they can spend this time with a smile.

One day of a patient’s stay in our hospice costs around PLN 50. The hospice does not make any profit, but it has to cover the salaries of the staff (nurses and doctor), pay for electricity and water, food for the patients, care products and medicines. They could not afford even a fraction of such care themselves. By funding a day of care for the suffering and abandoned, we are saying to them: ‘You don’t have to worry about anything anymore’.

Urgent help needed

Make Good Not War

One year on, food and warm items continue to be in urgent need in the war-torn towns and cities. Ukrainian children, elderly people, people with special needs and disabilities are among the people who we care for every day. Their survival depends on receiving basic staple food: bread, milk, canned meat and grains.
Let’s show that one year after the outbreak of the war, we all still stand with Ukraine! United and strong! Let the Ukrainians see how many friends they have!
